The Case Against Corporate Social Responsibility — Reprise

✅ All InspiredEconomist articles and guides have been fact-checked and reviewed for accuracy. Please refer to our editorial policy for additional information.

It seems as if CSR skeptic-in-chief Dr. Aneel Karnani of Michigan’s Ross School of Business has summoned, or at least ignited, the fires of socially progressive PR firm Fenton Communications.

Fenton’s New York City office has announced a webinar that will create a dialogue surrounding Karnani’s now infamous WSJ op/ed where he threw stones at the efficacy of CSR in lieu of state intervention. On the roster for the September 17 session (10:30am EDT) are:

Christine Arena – CSR blogger, author and CEO of “sparkUp”
Matthew Bishop – U.S. Business Editor and New York Bureau Chief, The Economist
Bob Corcoran – Vice President, Corporate Citizenship, President & Chairman, GE Foundation
Aron Cramer – President and CEO, BSR
Chrystia Freeland – Global Editor-at-Large, ThomsonReuters
Georg Kell – Executive Director, UN Global Compact
Dr. Aneel Karnani – Associate Professor of Strategy, Stephen M. Ross School of Business, University of Michigan
Susan McPherson – Senior Vice President, Fenton
Dave Stangis – Vice President, CSR and Sustainability, Campbell Soup Company
