The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the shift in business norms that stakeholder activism pursues and the imperative of moving from words to actions. With this context, Business leaders the world over are forced to reflect and perhaps make some necessary adjustments, because quite frankly, it’s a stakeholders’ world we operate in. In conversation with two business leaders to share their perspectives on the topic were:
