When CEOs Speak Out


On provocative topics from immigration to gender equality to gun control, corporate leaders are stepping into the public sphere like never before. Just a few years ago, highly placed business executives avoided controversial subjects, reasoning that the risk of offending customers was too high a price to pay. Suddenly, not taking a stance can seem like the more dangerous approach. What's at risk when the CEO takes a public stance? What's at risk if he or she doesn't speak up?

Also participating, Mary Lynn Carver, Chief Communications Officer, General Mills.
