29 Nov Social Responsibility Forum at IE
Written by: Max Oliva, Social Impact Management Director, Social Innovation Center@IE
Social Innovation has been a pillar at IE since its inception and as we proudly state, we embrace our mission to shape leaders with global vision, an entrepreneurial mindset and a humanistic approach to drive innovation and change in organizations.
A main driver of this movement has been led by students, and the event that epitomizes this without a doubt is the Social Responsibility Forum (SRF). On early 2019 we will celebrate our thirteenth edition of the SFR and we are very happy to share that it will be co-organized for the first time by IE’s Social Innovation Department and IE’s Net Impact Chapter. For more than a decade the SRF brings together business executives, community leaders, social entrepreneurs, and students to discuss how a shift in business and social mindsets has created new growth opportunities in the global economy.
This years Forum will create a platform to discuss the most important sustainability paradigms and the rise of knowledge sharing and adaptive learning necessary for leadership, decision-making and the ever changing landscape of social innovation.
During the 13th annual SRF, we will be fostering discussions at the nexus of business, technology and sustainability. Our attempts are to question the visions of sustainability and explore the kind of re-conceptualization necessary to be better managers, leaders and global citizens. Our main objective is to provide a platform that engenders interaction not only with the ideas, but more importantly with the actors.
With the right dose of empowerment and inspiration, anyone can become a paradigm shifter and contribute in reaching that sustainable future we would all like be part of.
With much excitement we invite you to be a part of this event and be inspired by a new generation of leaders while having the opportunity to network, learn and exchange ideas. See you in 2019 at the Social Responsibility Forum!
