There has been so much in the news about company leadership and lack of moral character, that it only makes sense to address the situation. I do not know all the details of what has been happening, however, what I can say is lack of character and morals in corporations has been going on for a long time. The worst part is we as consumers give these companies our hard-earned money.
We assume they do the right thing, yet many of us who have worked or are working for these corporations, clearly know they don't. Lululemon is, as you know, a legging company that has had many issues - both past and present - with leadership, and the question remains, why does this continue? One of the most irritating issues is that these so-called leaders get huge golden parachutes and it's the consumers' hard-earned cash that pays them. The leadership is rewarded for lack of leadership.
Why do we seem to be okay with being lied to around every corner about what we are consuming? Whether it's with the food industry, clothing industry, or even the banking industry, we are being misled. Let's face it - the leadership in corporations spend a lot of time and money creating the image of their company, yet much of it is just smoke and mirrors riddled with corruption and lies, with the "feel-good" campaigns they run to cover up their deceit. It's interesting that we get upset when we see and hear of these things happening, yet we seem to ignore it.
So what is the solution you ask? It's simple - become a conscious buyer and do your best to purchase from ethical businesses. It may seem somewhat daunting, however, I assure you that if you start thinking about what company you are supporting and spend some time researching what they claim, you will find the truth somewhere in there!
