In its Corporate Citizenship Symposium, which is co-sponsored by the School of Business Administration and the Law School, the Center brings together scholars and members of the business and legal communities to address crucial questions related to corporate citizenship—the corporation’s responsibilities to government and society, to its “citizen” shareholders, and its worker “citizens.” A transcript of the first symposium, on “Corporate Citizenship and the Law,” was published by the Wayne Law Review. 

Two renowned financial experts were our featured speakers this year. Lawrence Ingrassia, the Business and Finance Editor of the New York Times, spoke about the policy debate and tension over fixing the financial system to serve the broader economy without stifling innovation. Henry “Chip” Dickson, Managing Director of W2 Freedom, examined the same issues but focused more on the origins of the financial crisis. After the presentations, members of the audience were given the opportunity to ask questions. Linda M. Beale, Associate Professor of Law in the WSU Law School, moderated.
