Panel: Transparency and Corporate Social Responsibility

November 17, 2021 12:00 AM

Nearly every conversation about improving social responsibility, ethics, and human rights in the tech sector ultimately ends up calling for greater transparency, which is a key gatekeeping problem limiting progress elsewhere. In order to meaningfully engage in efforts to improve things, regulators, and the public at large, must first arrive at an accurate understanding of the way things are operating. But "transparency" is a fuzzy and flexible concept, which can mean vastly different things depending on the speaker and the context.

This panel, which is co-presented by the UCLA Institute for Technology, Law & Policy and the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy explores the connection between transparency and corporate social responsibility, in order to provide avenues for meaningful improvement in the tech sector:
