As part of the “Working Towards Shared Prosperity” conference at Ross sponsored by Business+Impact and the Aspen Institute Business & Society Program, this is one of two free public events for students, staff and the general public.

To the degree that workers are currently viewed as costs to be managed, how do we change the narrative for boards, executives and especially shareholders? How do we utilize the desire for purpose-driven work to combat distrust in capitalism and corporations and tell a different story about how corporations create value for society?

ENVISIONING THE FUTURE: BUSINESS AS CREATORS

OCTOBER 26 @ 9:00 AM – 10:15 AM

Free

As part of the “Working Towards Shared Prosperity” conference at Ross sponsored by Business+Impact and the Aspen Institute Business & Society Program, this is one of two free public events for students, staff and the general public.

Business is not an innocent bystander when it comes to forces such as technology and market shifts.  Why then is the current narrative about how business can “cope” with the future of work instead of recognizing the deep influence business has in building that future? What could a more just version of work look like and how do we get there?

Jim Keane, CEO, Steelcase will be interviewed by Joe Nocera, Bloomberg

Joined by Maureen Conway, Aspen Institute; and Tom Kochan, MIT Sloan School of Management

This event and the conference at large are supported by the W.K. Kellogg FoundationAccentureDeloitte, the Good Companies, Good Jobs Initiative at MIT Sloan, and the C.K. Prahalad Initiative.  The media partner for the conference is The Conversation.
