Public Lecture: Should Corporations Give in to Twitter Mobs?

This public lecture is part of the Ethics in the Society 2021 offered by SSE Riga.

Speaker: Chris MacDonald, Ted Rogers School of Management, Ryerson University,Toronto, Canada.

This presentation will consider the use of Twitter as a tool for encouraging corporate action. We will consider two cases. First, we will consider Twitter-based attempts to change corporate policies through things like consumer boycotts. Second, we will consider attempts by Twitter “mobs” to have individuals fired by their employers in the light of perceived wrongdoing.

You are welcome to join us on February 25th at 16:30 on Zoom.
