Do Good & Do Well: An Exploration of Corporate Social Innovation
“The public expectations of your company have never been greater. Society is demanding that companies, both public and private, serve a social purpose. To prosper over time, every company must not only deliver financial performance but also show how it makes a positive contribution to society. Companies must benefit all of their stakeholders, including shareholders, employees, customers, and the communities in which they operate.”
Laurence Fink, CEO BlackRock, January 16, 2018
That’s the most powerful institutional investor in the world, with more than $6 trillion in assets, telling CEOs that corporations need to commit to social change as a strategic priority and that this will mean a new way of doing business. By integrating social impacts into business strategy, socially innovative corporations play a vital role in building a sustainable future for society and the planet. Businesses need professionals who can create shared value for both their organization and humanity by blending effective business models with solutions to pressing issues.
This talk will explore how corporations - and corporate leaders - can do good while doing well.
