Breakfast Seminar: Stacy Neier, Senior Lecturer, Loyola University Chicago, Quinlan School of Business

This event is over.

Session Topic

"The Curious Case of the Common Good"

Marketing segmentation suggests that a "one size fits all" approach is not efficient, while marketing towards the common good now suggests that we shift messaging to take into account all consumers' needs. John Rawls defines common good as "certain general conditions that are ... equally to everyone's advantage." So, how can marketers integrate empathetic perspectives into understanding how to satisfy consumers' needs? With tools such as the Krznaric’s Empathy Museum, marketers hold the power to change how mindful interactions occur with consumers. Combining common good with empathy underscores emerging importance for marketers to practice the art and science of curiosity to face conflicting perspectives head-on and spark novel tactics for engagement.
