The Future of the Responsible Company

We could not be more excited to have an Author Talk featuring Vincent Stanley!  As a CBEY Resident Fellow (and director of philosophy at Patagonia) he's usually on the other side of these events, guiding conversations with authors on books offering important lessons that help support the transition to a just and thriving world.

We're honored to have Zoe Chance, Senior Lecturer at Yale School of Management and author of Influence is Your Superpower, sit in conversation with Vincent about his new book, The Future of the Responsible Company.  Written with Yvon Chouinard, founder and former owner of Patagonia. This book draws on 50 years of experience at Patagonia to challenge all business owners and leaders to rethink their businesses in a time of cultural and climate chaos.

The authors describe the current impact of manufacturing, commerce, and traditional capitalism on the planet’s natural systems and human communities, and how that impact is forcing business to change its ways. The Future of the Responsible Company shows companies how to reduce the harm they cause, improve the quality of their business, and provide the kind of meaningful work everyone seeks. It concludes with specific, practical steps every business can undertake, as well as advice on what to do and in what order.

We hope you can join us on campus for what will be a very special Author Talk! 

First 75 to arrive will receive a copy of the book. Vincent will be able to sign books after the talk.

Please join us for lunch. *We are committed to reducing waste at our event. Therefore, we ask that when you register, you commit to doing your best to attend.
