Presented in partnership with the WSBA International Practice Section

 

Please join us for a presentation by Professor Dana Raigrodski, a lecturer and director of the General Law LL.M. program at the University of Washington School of Law, which will challenge the prevailing view that adopting socially responsible business practices is at tension with for-profit purposes of businesses by relying on a series of business studies and data from the experience of several successful companies.

 

Using this data, Professor Raigrodski will show that business policies that improve worker well-being do not inherently compromise profits and can also improve a business's bottom line. In doing so, the presentation will show that the task of convincing business leaders to adopt better policies may be less challenging if framed as a core business strategy in the pursuit of profit.


International Practice Section Annual General Meeting will precede the CLE and a reception will follow the CLE.
