CHICAGO, Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2016 Edelman Trust Barometer revealed a large and growing trust gap between the informed public and mass population, with a clear link to income inequality and divergent expectations of the future. Given the increasing influence of peer conversations among the broader population, this disparity has created a significant divide between those with authority, and those with influence.
Business, as the institution with the greatest increase in trust, finds itself in a new position of strength, with the opportunity for their leaders and CEOs to help bridge this trust gap.
Join The Executives' Club of Chicago on Feb. 4 where Richard Edelman will discuss the inequality of trust, the state of trust in CEOs and the actions business leaders can take to continue earning the public's trust.
The discussion will be moderated by Harry Kraemer, Jr., Retired Chairman & CEO, Baxter International; Executive Partner, Madison Dearborn Partners
