On a daily basis, businesses serve as powerful forces for good around the world. From job creation to corporate citizenship initiatives, the private sector's impact on society is enormous. Building corporate purpose has the potential to unlock even greater societal impact. 

A strong corporate purpose can unify a company and empower employees. It transcends business units to unlock the full potential of a company. It can strengthen supply chains and attract more customers. And if this sense of purpose infuses the entire value chain, real progress can occur.  

What we'll explore:

  • How a strategic corporate purpose can make your company more successful while heightening and growing your company's impact around the world
  • The effect of purpose on employee attraction, retention, and achievement
  • To what degree partnerships can be strengthened by a common purpose
  • How purpose can improve your corporate citizenship activities in health and wellness, economic empowerment, sustainability, disaster response, food security, education, and more.

Featured speakers:

  • Paula Kerger, President and CEO, PBS
  • Nicolas Jammet, Co-founder and Co-CEO, sweetgreen
  • Jamey Millar, SVP, Managed Markets and Government Affairs, GSK
  • Diane Melley, Vice President, Global Citizenship Initiatives, IBM 
  • Scott Jackson, President and CEO, Global Impact
  • Evan Lutz, CEO and Co-founder, Hungry Harvest

Purpose & Progress will showcase inspirational leaders, practical case studies, and innovative solutions to help your organization grow while achieving a greater effect. The conference will convene thought leaders and practitioners from across sectors to allow for opportunity to network and learn from leaders and peers alike.

Join us this November and discover how Purpose & Progress can elevate your company and your impact.
