Financial Times on CEOs against polarization

The Financial Times’ Andrew Edgecliffe-Johnson this week published an article about attempts by American business leaders to counteract growing polarization of the political landscape.

An example of this trend is Idaho Leaders United, an alliance of companies aimed at encouraging societal leaders to “reject bigotry and political violence”. Tommy Ahlquist, who leads a property developer and helped found the group, is cited as having been spurred into action by the increase in politically-motivated harassment (online and in the real world) suffered by local leaders.

Other business leaders noted in the article for their political engagement include Andrew Liveris (formerly of Dow Chemical) and Johnny Taylor of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
