How Business Can Address the Threats To Our Democracy

Business for America

Location: Online

In response to the growing influence of authoritarian leaders around the globe, President Biden and the State Department will be holding a virtual Summit on Democracy from December 9-10,. Leaders from the US government, foreign heads of state, civil society, and the private sector will focus on challenges and opportunities facing democracies. The meeting will provide a platform for leaders to make both individual and collective commitments to defend democracy and human rights at home and abroad.

In parallel to the Summit, Business for America is planning a 75-minute long webinar on December 8th (12:00pm – 1:15pm ET) to discuss “How Business Can Address the Threats to Democracy”. We’ll focus on the escalating threats to our political stability and form of government, and provide a roadmap for individual business and collective action to protect our representative democracy and capitalistic economy.

The discussion will include insightful presentations from Ian Bassin, co-founder of Protect Democracy, Didi Kuo of Stanford, Joel Elliott of Salesforce, Dave Leichtman of Microsoft and others to be announced.
