One of the topics that will be discussed at next month’s Philanthropy & Engagement Council’s meeting in Winston-Salem is the corporation’s role in society. This topic is increasingly being debated on the world stage by both those who embrace business and those who seek structural change. Sen.

While this is disconcerting, it presents opportunities for companies to engage in new and different ways.
