Carolyn Woo on Improving Globalization

“There’s a debate: does globalization work or does it not work? And I always say the evidence is that we’ve seen it. It works some of the time.
And so, the key is to increase that some of the time to most of the time.”

Carolyn Woo on Moral Leadership in Business

“We know that globalization can bring about a lot of good, but it doesn’t always. And it all depends on people. It depends on the moral sensitivities, the moral responsibility, the moral energies of the people who lead business. Business is really people. And among those people, leaders matter most. They not only set the direction, they set the boundaries, they built the culture of what is cool and what is not cool to do. Moral energies is a must. That’s really sort of the engine which drives where business ends up. Globalization, market, they’re just tools. And those tools can bring about good things and not-so-good things.”
