This unit we have been focusing on organizational citizenship and societal responsibility. There is a lot of debate about whether or not organizations have a “debt to society” and should do what they can to make their community and even the world a better place.
For this discussion, address the following questions:
- Should “business stick to business” or be actively involved in improving society?
- How do you respond to CEO’s and companies that take public stands on social issues like global warming, immigration, and LGBT rights?
- Have you ever participated in a consumer boycott? Was it effective?
