Corporate wokeness is far worse than most Americans realize. While successful boycotts of Bud Light and Target have dominated the headlines in recent weeks, too often the actions of these companies have been attributed to a trendy pursuit of fringe progressive ideas that has blown up in clueless executive-suite faces. But the sad truth is that large US-based multinational corporations are deeply committed to supporting a radical agenda that aims to profoundly change existing social norms in Western nations.
“Bud Light, Target [and] Kohl’s [parent companies] are all members of a George Soros-funded business association that has partnered with Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum and the United Nations to form a corporate coalition ‘committed to leveraging … individual and collective advocacy to accelerate LGBTIQ+ equality and inclusion globally,’” Liberty Nation reported on June 3. A deeper examination of the organization in question reveals a long, concerted, and highly successful effort to instruct corporations on how to pursue a progressive cultural agenda.
Business for Social Responsibility’s (BSR) “mission is to work with business to create a just and sustainable world,” the organization declares on its website. “Our work is enabled by long-term relationships with a growing member network of more than 300 of the world’s most influential and dynamic companies.” Abortion and climate change are two key issues at the core of the BSR action plan.
Connect the Dots
Let’s use abortion to illustrate how the process works. No matter how strongly you may feel about this particular issue, the purpose here is to show how the network operates.
At BSR’s 2017 annual conference, then-president of Planned Parenthood (PP) Cecile Richards gave a keynote address to an audience filled with executives from name-brand corporate behemoths. Richards “highlighted the role of business in advancing women’s empowerment,” BSR stated. “The good news is that business and business leaders are best positioned to lead us out of the patriarchy and into the light.”
During her speech, Richards name-dropped a potent ally. “I’m glad my friend Shamina Singh is here from Mastercard. Thank you Shamina for the shout out earlier and the good work that you’re doing.”
Singh is “Founder & President, Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth [and] Executive Vice President, Sustainability,” her corporate bio at the credit-card giant reads. Her connections to the progressive ruling establishment are extensive.
Singh is a member of the board of directors at the Anti-Defamation League, “hate watch” organization considered by many to be discredited that brands most every conservative it comes across as a bigot. She also sits on advisory boards for several other influential organizations, including the Aspen Institute’s Civil Society Fellowship.
“Deeply committed to public service, Shamina has held senior positions in the White House and the US House of Representatives,” the bio continues. “In 2015, Shamina was appointed by President [Barack] Obama … to a six-year term on the Board of AmeriCorps, a $1 billion independent agency that places over 270,000 volunteers with social sector organizations across the US. She served as chair for two years.”
This is but one example of the highly placed corporate friends on whom PP can rely.
At the conclusion of her address, Richards “received a standing ovation” from the corporate attendees. “Well, you’ve all got your marching orders,” BSR Senior Vice President Laura Gitman told these leading corporate figures. Marching orders from the president of Planned Parenthood?
Corporate Supporters of Training Abortionists
Fast forward a few years, and the overt dedication of large corporations to PP abounds. When the US Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in 2022, companies tripped over themselves to publicly pledge to guarantee employee access to abortion, including paying travel costs for those who had to go to other states where it would remain legal.
Taking things much further, multinational corporate goliaths Procter & Gamble and Unilever fund an organization that helps trains abortionists. Women Deliver is a feminist group that advises “governments, corporations, and civil society organizations alike,” the organization declares on its website.
Women Deliver has partnered with Ipas, an international pro-abortion NGO. WD is very open about a key goal of the collaboration. A 2018 article by Ipas Chief Scientific and Technical Officer Kathryn Andersen posted on the Women Deliver website is titled “Putting Women at the Center: Training abortion service providers.” Ipas has published training manuals for abortionists that even feature second-trimester abortions.
Second-trimester abortions are performed up to 24 weeks. This means Women Deliver partner Ipas is training doctors to perform abortions at six months of pregnancy.
At the “Our Supporters” page for Women Deliver, right alongside the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Big Pharma staples Merck and Johnson & Johnson, the corporate logos for Procter & Gamble and Unilever are featured. P&G is a “Visionary” (highest level) sponsor of Women Deliver’s 2023 annual conference. Ipas is listed in the “Advocate” category. Unilever is posted on BSR while P&G has collaborated with it in the past. A Global LGBTIQ+ Equality Partnership page includes P&G in a “who we work with” category.
Don’t like giving your money to companies that fund the training of six-month abortionists? Here are the brands P&G and Unilever own. Now take this diagram of the corporate abortion network and use it to get a feel for how the push for climate change, transgenderism, and all the destructive items found under the umbrella term “social justice” function. All are stated “focus areas” of BSR.
