Page Conversation on PACs: Corporate Giving In a Polarized America
Enterprises from BlackRock to Hallmark have publicly decided to rethink their association with legislators involved with the insurgence at the U.S. Capitol by pausing or withdrawing PAC campaign funding. Now, millions of dollars traditionally given to campaigns through corporate PACs are hanging in the balance. In this Page Conversation on Tuesday, February 2, at 3 p.m. ET, Doug Pinkham, president of the Public Affairs Council, will lead a discussion about the impact these actions will have on the future of campaign financing, political giving and corporate advocacy. He will be joined by two Page members from companies who made a decision to pause or stop PAC funding, Rebecca Bentley, VP of Global Public Affairs at the Dow Chemical Company, and Larry Solomon, CCO of AT&T. Page Conversations are virtual events that give Page and Page Up members a forum to discuss critical topics that are impacting their enterprises and the role of the CCO. Each Page Conversation will feature an interview with an expert followed by a discussion among members. The entire call will be conducted under Chatham House Rules. If you have any questions, please contact Natalie Martinez.
