From Shareholder to Stakeholder: Creating the Corporation of Tomorrow

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There's no doubt that businesses will play a major role in shaping our economic and social futures. The real question is: what role? Are philanthropy and corporate social responsibility enough? Join us for a discussion with a number of Certified B Corporations that are committing to more. B Corps voluntarily meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability, and together are driving systemic change so business creates value for society, not just shareholders. Help us explore what it means to redefine success in business, as well as the role social entrepreneurs can play in doing so.
