With expectations for sustainability higher than ever, we’ll examine how to harness this heightened awareness to deliver a higher level of performance for ourselves, our organizations–and the world at large, asking:
- How does business develop long-term strategies to think globally and act locally in today’s environment?
- How does business work with different kinds of partners or even competitors to make a difference?
- How are customer values changing? What can companies do to keep up?
- What are the lessons learned from businesses creating new jobs in the expanding sustainability arena?
- How do engaged employees continue to help companies develop and implement their sustainability strategies? What keeps employees involved and enthusiastic?
A panel of leading businesswomen will address these issues based on real-life, practical experiences. Participants will have the chance to work in small groups to examine their companies’ current sustainability agendas and brainstorm ideas about how they can harness momentum to drive business results.
