Quoted: Sydney Finkelstein on Executives and Controversy


“You’ve got to be seen to be standing up to something that presumably a substantial percentage of your workforce would find offensive,” Tuck’s Sydney Finkelstein tells The Wall Street Journal in a story about reactions from Wal-Mart and other large corporations to controversies such as recent Arkansas and Indiana legislation that many regard as anti-gay.

Finkelstein is the associate dean for executive education and the Steven Roth Professor of Management at Tuck.
