It provides strategies, language, frameworks, and tools to analyze and respond to these factors to gain a competitive advantage.

Explore the move toward stakeholder capitalism, how it relates to your organization, and how it can be leveraged for a sustainable, strategic edge. Youll also gain the opportunity to engage with a diverse and international group of participants, and grow your global network online.
