CEO activism plusses and minuses

CEO activism plusses and minuses

Here are three recent pieces reflecting on CEO activism since the president’s executive order on immigration. One I wrote for HBR and the other two are full of compelling arguments about whether CEOs should speak up or not, should be on the president’s advisory council or not. And ultimately, the cost of CEOs remaining silent or neutral. I can safely predict that this new surge in CEO activism will continue.
