The role of corporations in civil society is changing
Simmons is a global expert helping corporations navigate challenging socio-political environments where companies must inevitably contend with rising stakeholder expectations concerning their role in advancing society (e.g., social impact, corporate citizenship, CSR, and ESG).
Companies can be vehicles for empowerment and social impact
“The free enterprise system has the potential to be more inclusive, advancing opportunities for vulnerable people, ameliorating inequities, promoting wealth creation, and contributing to a flourishing society locally, nationally, and globally. Rather than a barrier to advancement, companies, as non-state actors, can function as vehicles for individual, group, and societal empowerment.”
