Join the Smith Family Business Initiative as we host “Connected Conversations”, a bi-monthly webinar series that explores topics relevant to family business owners, members, advisors, students, and alumni. We invite you to join us as we navigate the current uncertainty in our global economy, and its impacts on family businesses. 

On May 20 from 12-1pm EDT, Vincent Stanley, Director of Philosophy at Patagonia, will lead a discussion on "The Responsible Company." He will share insight on the components that make up today's responsible businesses.

In his landmark book, The Responsible Company, co-authored with Yvon Chouinard, founder and owner of Patagonia, Vincent Stanley, draws on their 40 years' experience – and knowledge of current efforts by other companies – to articulate the elements of responsible business for our time. Look towards the future with Vincent, explore the many levels of a “responsible company,” and examine why this approach matters with increasing importance. 

Please submit questions you would like Vincent Stanley to address in advance of the webinar to Hannah Barends at
