Companies across industries are beginning to play a new role in education. These companies are tackling education issues through their core business strategy and operations. In doing so, they are finding new ways to become essential partners for schools, nonprofits, and governments in helping to raise levels of student and workforce achievement.

This one-day conference, Transforming the Role of Business in Education, hosted by the Shared Value Initiative, FSG, and Stanford Social Innovation Review, will bring together business, education, and nonprofit leaders eager to explore new models to help address the world's educational needs. Through this conference, we will:

  • Explore trends driving companies to engage in education in a new way.
  • Discover how business, nonprofits, schools, and governments can create partnerships that improve education at scale.
  • Offer practical recommendations for how corporate, government, and civil society leaders can work together to create greater value for society.

Top-level speakers include Sir Michael Barber, Chief Education Advisor, Pearson; Karen Cator, CEO, Digital Promise; Diane Tavenner, CEO, Summit Public Schools; James Bernard, Global Director of Strategic Partnerships, Microsoft Education; Jamie McAuliffe, CEO, Education for Employment; Bill Goodwyn, CEO, Discovery Education; and many more.
