Impact Week 2021 – Reimagining Capitalism in a World on Fire
Tue 4/20 • 11:30AM - 12:30PM PDT
In March 2020, businesses all over the globe hit a tipping point as they grappled with the impact of a pandemic, racial inequality, social injustices and natural disasters. We are left to consider the questions: what is the true cost of capitalism as it stands today? Are business leaders thinking of the second and third order consequences of their decisions on the environment and on society at large? And how can we learn effective tools and strategies to integrate mission-driven thinking in the areas of finance, governance and leadership? Join this Impact Week signature event, the Centers@Anderson and Professor Terry Kramer in conversation with Rebecca Henderson, who has been at the forefront of the shift from shareholder to stakeholder capitalism as a Harvard professor, a board member on several Fortune 500 companies, and the author of Reimagining Capitalism in a World on Fire. She will discuss how business leaders must adapt and innovate to address the world’s most pressing issues. UCLA Anderson Dean Tony Bernardo will provide opening remarks.
