October 24th, 2019 7:00PM -8:30PM
As business becomes increasingly global, multinationals are expected to continue expanding their markets into more nations around the world. However, sometimes values that are taken for granted in a company's home country—values such as capitalism and democracy, alongside other cultural values—may clash with local politics and cultures in other nations. When this occurs, companies have to navigate the situation by weighing competing interests, considering issues like free speech, cultural sensitivity, social responsibility, ethics, human rights, and responsibility to shareholders.
Join our conversation about recent tensions between multinational corporations and local politics and share your thoughts on the best way to adapt to local environments around the world.
