Corporate Accountability: Restoring the Balance
Corporations are the most powerful social invention for creating wealth. They can also ruin our environment and tear our social fabric. Even small shareholders can make corporations more accountable and sustainable, using the tools of democratic corporate governance and social media. This class/shared interest group will start with a mostly lecture format and will hopefully transition to a workshop format. We will discuss problems surrounding corporations and how those can be addressed (primarily by shareholders). Then we will move on to discuss possible campaigns to influence corporate behavior. Subgroups are possible, facilitated by Zoom rooms. We may continue our shared interest group beyond October 30, 2020, if there is interest.
Registration is now open through The Renaissance Society at California State University, Sacramento. If interested, you first need to become a member of the Society. Renaissance Society memberships go from July 1 to June 30 and cost $100 for the year. Here is the link for online membership signups. You will receive your membership number after you pay.
Second, look through the Fall 2020 catalog. Many classes are available and start on September 4. Find “Corporate Accountability” on page 38 of the Fall catalog. Note the name, day of the week, and time for all other classes you want to take. (You will get another catalog in 2021 for Spring classes.)
Last, register for your classes. They are listed by day of the week. You will need your membership number to register. These Screenshots of the process may be helpful. For general membership questions: phone or email firstname.lastname@example.org or (916) 758-5133.
