The Power of Corporations

Advancing Equity through Shared Value Strategies
Societal inequality can impede economic growth and performance. Companies have an opportunity to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion through shared value strategies—but many haven’t yet identified the opportunity, much less the pathways to get there. Join leading experts in the equity field to explore the powerful role corporations can play in closing the inequality gap through bold leadership and a shared value mindset.

Intrapreneurship, Unimagined Markets, and Shared Value
The concept of “intrapreneurship” has recently gained in visibility and become an “on-trend” topic, and the notion of purpose-driven individuals driving change within organizations is being broadly adopted with many different interpretations. But rather than happening by chance, intrapreneurship can be consciously cultivated by organizations to unleash new growth and uncover unimagined market opportunity through shared value. This session will explore how organizations can develop intrapreneurial capability to achieve greater shared value results, and invites participants to develop recommendations for tools and processes that can enhance this capability.

The Power of Collective Action

Models for Collective Action and Impact
While individual companies have proven shared value strategies at the initiative or enterprise level, many see the greatest potential in collaborative action among actors representing different industries and sectors.

Scaling for Impact: Connecting Corporates and Pioneers of New Technology Solutions for the Poor
Technology has played a crucial role in meeting basic needs and enhancing human development—yet many solutions remain out of the reach of the global poor due to lack of implementation at scale, poor adaptation, or high cost. Partnerships between corporations and pioneers of new technology solutions can be a powerful way to bring new ideas to market, accelerate scale of impact for the poor, and enhance business performance. This session will focus on the potential for corporations to address the technology gap, and encourage participants to identify opportunities for future action.
