For business leaders and problem solvers who see exciting market opportunities at the intersection of business goals and societal challenges, the Shared Value Initiative is the leading community shaping research, partnerships, and practices. The Initiative connects global thinkers and practitioners who are exploring this new frontier in search of the best ways to realize its tremendous potential.

If you are interested in advancing shared value in your organization and networking with leaders in the field, this event is for you. The Shared Value Leadership Summit is the only event each year which hosts the most advanced shared value practitioners in the world. Held for the first time in New York, the event will focus on the role the investment community can play in advancing shared value. Attendees will learn the best practices to apply shared value at a company or organization. Leaders who attend the summit will learn how to champion it, execute on the ground, reorganize and implement the change process, and build stakeholder engagement and buy-in as a shared value intrapreneur.

Over two days, you will:

  • Explore shared value in the context of the investor community with a preview of new research by Michael E. Porter and Mark Kramer.
  • Hear geographic- and industry-specific viewpoints from a panel of multinational CEOs.
  • Discern the relevance of shared value to brand identity, loyalty, and engagement with the help of leading brand and PR experts.
  • Sharpen your ability to identify and navigate best practices for successful cross-sector partnerships from organizations that are collaborating on creating shared value now. 

The 2014 Summit will also feature speakers sharing their innovative models for shared value implementation. (Learn more about Shared Value Storytellers.)
