The results of the 2016 U.S. presidential election will have profound political, economic, and social implications for the United States and the world, though it is too early to predict those implications. From a non-partisan perspective, many of us who have committed our careers to building a more just and sustainable world are asking what the impact of the election results will be on our efforts.

At BSR, we know that the role of business in creating a more sustainable and inclusive future is now more important than ever. We also know that our sustainability community needs to consider the strategies to meet this new political reality together, and we published a blog featuring President and CEO Aron Cramer’s insights on actions that can shape those strategies.

So we invite the BSR member community to join us for a non-partisan and open discussion. This will be an informal opportunity to get together, support one another, see what we can learn from the factors that decided the election, and begin to discuss the implications for our collective efforts. Join us for a drink and the opportunity to discuss the impacts of the election with your sustainability peers.

This event is open to BSR members only. To ensure balanced representation, we may limit registration to two participants from any one company.
