We hear about corporate social responsibility a lot, and the need for accountability in practice—not just in talk—is more important than ever. This webinar explores how broad-based ownership is being used to create more accountable economies. We’ll hear about decade of research on how corporate “multi-stakeholder initiatives” fail and why we need to rethink ownership from the ground up. We will also hear about the legacy of Associated Press, the cooperatively owned nonprofit news agency that was founded in 1846 and whose content reaches half the world’s population every day.
