Defending Democracy & Free Enterprise: The Role of Colorado Business

Organizer: Business for America

Most businesses work hard to earn trust. They know trust improves employee engagement, innovation, customer and stakeholder relationships, and supports the political and economic stability on which business depends. Yet, trust in U.S. institutions – including trust in business – is dangerously low. According to several recent studies, low confidence in our political and economic systems, and the outsize influence of moneyed interests in shaping public policy, are major factors in this decline.

In this high-stakes environment, businesses are under increasing pressure to demonstrate "corporate civic responsibility." Employees want to know where their company stands on key issues, and they expect a culture that supports civic engagement. Please join us for an informal gathering to learn more about these trends and what "corporate civic responsibility" might mean for your firm in Colorado. Secretary of State Jena Griswold and Congressman Ken Buck have been invited as our featured guests.
