Firms mostly care about social justice when: a) it is convenient, (just pay lip-service, nothing to lose)/ good PR b) they’re scared that a critical mass will accuse them of not speaking up Not saying business leaders are heartless; in their personal life they may genuinely care about these issues, but just the core nature of any for-profit business I guess. Thoughts?

Yep.... but is this really a surprise? Business is business. The power is held with the almighty dollar bill, especially if you have an unhealthy balance sheet

Depends on the actions that follow the words

For sure, completely agree - if they did act on words every time, the situation likely wouldn’t be this dire. PwC isn’t perfect, but they did release an actionable six step plan as a start, so I’m happy with their response (so far). Profit goes hand in hand with talent, so they’ll do what they can to retain / recruit people

And?

I mean I agree with you, companies are unfeeling automatons. They gotta do what they gotta do to survive.

Ill take their empty words though if it helps create awareness.

Agree. But I consistently use both levers to get positive change. ‘B’ tends to be more effective impact wise.
