With the help of Zoom meetings, during the past year, the Caux Round Table (CRT) has, to an acceptable extent, successfully kept up the pace of situational engagement and contributing to thought leadership in most unusually circumstances. However, the dynamics of online round tables to me cannot replicate the quality of in-person discussions. The ideas and reflections seem more formal and there are fewer “ah hah” moments of insight and connection of dots as participants around the table easily engage in flowing exchanges and uninhibited contributions to the discernment process.
Thus, with the ending of restrictions on gatherings and meetings and with Landmark Center reopening to the public, we’ve scheduled a series of round tables for the last Tuesday of each month (except November) starting this month.
The proposed topic for consideration and its date are:
-“Infrastructure: A Public Good or Private Good? How Do We Get Value for Money?” Tuesday, June 29
-“Climate Change: What is the Problem? What is to Be Done and By Whom?” Tuesday, July 27
-“Social Media: Does Social Media Need a Code of Ethics?” Tuesday, August 31
-“Does Corporate Media Need a Code of Ethics?” Tuesday, September 28
-“The Financialization of Everything.” Tuesday, October 26
-“The New Racism: Normalizing a New Discourse Regime.” Date TBD
-“2021: The Year That Was.” Tuesday, December 28
These topics have been proposed as being worthy of reflection and deserving of sound intellectual analysis and policy recommendations. The topics implicate both caring for the common good and the CRT’s Principles for Business and Principles for Government.
All events will be held from 9:00 to 11:00 am in the Landmark Center in room 317.
Participation will be limited to 20 participants to allow for continued social distancing.
Registration fee is $10, which can be paid at the door.
