Beschrijving van het evenement
Anand Giridharadas, the author of the groundbreaking book Winners Take All, will make his appearance at Erasmus University Rotterdam

Over dit evenement

Winners take All is an insider’s groundbreaking investigation of how the global elite’s efforts to “change the world” preserve the status quo and obscure their role in causing the problems they later seek to solve. It shines a light on the shady sides of philanthropy, and the ties with capitalism, but also describes how we - in the west - are currently living in a culture - or bubble - of winners, of people who're doing well by doing good - where we don't (want to) see that there are losers too.

Giridharadas asks inconvenient questions: Why, for example, should our gravest problems be solved by the unelected upper crust instead of the public institutions it erodes by lobbying and dodging taxes? He also points toward an answer: Rather than rely on scraps from the winners, we must take on the grueling democratic work of building more robust, egalitarian institutions and truly changing the world. A call to action for elites and everyday citizens alike.

We invite you to be part of this unique visit on October 16. The night is presented in collaboration The Tipping Point Foundation and Ondernemers van Nu. The discussion will include several professors:

Rob van Tulder is a professor of International Business-Society Management at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM). Professor van Tulder has published extensively on topics of multinational enterprise strategies, high-tech industries, corporate social responsibility, issues management, skills, network strategies, smaller industrial countries (welfare states) and European Community/Union policies.

Karen Maas is endowed professor Accounting and Sustainability at the Open University and academic director of Impact Centre Erasmus (ICE). Karen holds a PhD in Economics (Corporate Social Performance: from output measurement to impact measurement) and conducts research in the field of Impact measurement, Sustainability, Social Entreprises and Impact Investing.

Lonneke Roza (PhD) specializes in employee engagement in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) with a special interest in community involvement strategies (i.e. corporate citizenship; corporate community involvement; corporate philanthrophy).
