This coming Winter, the Stanford Graduate School of Business is continuing our speakers series on issues of societal importance, this time through the theme Tensions: Business, Civic Society and Politics.
Join the GSB's Leadership for Society Program this winter to explore People and Planet in the Information Era. Listen to conversations hosted by Prof. Brian Lowery with leaders from a variety of sectors on the immense opportunity and critical challenges for society presented by the rapid explosion of information in our world.
Examine new ways to think about work in light of the changes prompted by the pandemic.
Stanford Graduate School of Business Professor Brian Lowery hosts a series of critical and high visibility conversations to examine the way race interacts with structures of power, and how systemic racism manifests itself in institutions and our daily lives. The conversations are available to the entire Stanford community and open to the general public in the form of a recorded and a podcast series.
Examine the way race interacts with structures of power, and how systemic racism manifests itself in institutions and our daily lives.
While the pandemic upended the world of work for all of us, it also highlighted disparities in risk, wages, and stability for workers across sectors. Frontline employees throughout the pandemic have often been the first to face cutbacks and low-wages, while also disproportionately carrying the burden of risk to exposure. Make no mistake, for the care, agriculture, and service industries, as well as so many others, these disparities have always existed and work has consistently been undervalued. How might we reimagine work with a view to better equity post-COVID?
In this conversation, Professor Brian Lowery will be joined by Peter Gleick, Pacific Institute Co-Founder and Senior Fellow.
