Drive Economic Growth with Ethical and Effective Business Practices

Today’s corporate governance practices are dominated by top-down approaches to promoting diversity, corporate responsibility, and sustainability. But these approaches don’t actually produce the desired results and often have unintended consequences. We need alternatives to DEI, ESG, and CSR that don’t hamper economic growth and innovation. And, with your support, better ways can be found. Give now and you ensure business leaders have evidence-based research that offers alternatives to these challenges.

Initiatives like Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), and others have gained significant traction in corporate governance. These approaches aim to address pressing societal and environmental concerns while enhancing corporate transparency and accountability. But, despite their well-intentioned goals, these approaches often increase bureaucracy and red tape within organizations. And, the extensive compliance requirements associated with DEI and ESG often divert resources and attention away from core business activities, hampering agility, innovation, and ultimately economic growth and prosperity.

Corporate governance needs bottom-up solutions in place that empower business leaders to navigate these challenges effectively. You can help reshape corporate governance by investing in groundbreaking research that fosters collaboration among leaders in business, policy, and public intellectual arenas.

The Institute for Humane Studies (IHS) believes that the principle of a free society – which upholds individual liberty and free markets – should be central to addressing these challenges. With your support top scholars and researchers can find new innovative governance strategies, foster interdisciplinary research and collaboration, and influence policy debates.
