How do businesses today measure their success? More and more companies are considering the social and environmental impact of their practices. This is a revolution in capitalism where the mighty market economy seems to have developed an altruistic sense of purpose. Or has it? Our program will discuss how "corporate social responsibility," "green" offices, organic products and "fair trade" are changing the way businesses operate. What does it take to be legit, and who's just "green-washing"? Come hear more about this market phenomenon that draws from the power of business, activists and consumers.
