While a welcome paradigm shift for critics of shareholder primacy, the concept of stakeholder capitalism conjures vastly different problems, prospective solutions and desired outcomes for different populations. The controversial broadening of a business’s mandate beyond maximizing profits to account for its impact on customers, suppliers, employees and executives is exceedingly complex. And as an increasing number of businesses grapple with the adoption of ESG frameworks and stakeholder capitalism’s tenets – along with the inevitable trade-offs between competing stakeholder groups such adoption brings – public and private sector leaders alike need guidance.
Our 2023 Frontiers of Business Conference will convene top researchers, corporate executives and policy leaders all working around the globe to navigate the balance of corporate value and values. Join us as our experts share objective, evidence-based solutions for implementing stakeholder capitalism and ESG frameworks more broadly.
For our 2022 grand challenge, the Kenan Institute made the ambitious commitment to explore stakeholder capitalism and ESG investing – complex topics that have required the engagement of our global network of experts to unpack.
The Kenan Institute’s Distinguished Fellows comprise an exemplary set of global scholars committed to leveraging their individual expertise, thought leadership, research and networks to further the institute’s efforts to examine – and drive solutions to – the most complex and timely issues facing business and the economy today. Appointed on an annual basis, the 2022 Distinguished Fellows work to support the Kenan Institute’s exploration of stakeholder capitalism – and whether the model could be set to replace shareholder primacy.
