The world is at an inflection point. Human rights abuses, the rise of nationalism, the emergence of hate, chronic disparities based on race, age, sex, religion, and sexual orientation are occurring across the globe. These trends indicate that despite our sophisticated thinking in some areas, such as technology and medicine, we have fallen short when it comes to valuing other humans. The evolutionary instincts that paved the way for the survival of our species, such as tribalism, pose significant challenges for navigating modern life. The way we live and the way we work is unsustainable. Corporate social responsibility must take on a new meaning if we have any hope to move society to be fairer, more just, and more human.
