Seattle Lunch Event
Thursday, October 13, 2011
12:00 - 1:30 pm
Seattle Pacific University - Gwinn Commons
In a North American context, government and business are often adversaries. Government does not always trust business to self-monitor its practices, and business people often view the public sector as overstepping their boundaries and working against their economic goals. Yet, business, like other institutions, is designed to operate in concert with other cultural groups, such as families, churches, non-profits, universities and governments. What if business and government could function in greater harmony and with greater trust, finding shared values and working in ways that allow for greater numbers of employees, customers and citizens to prosper?
Why Business and Government Are Not, and How They Can Partner"
