Globally, and in our region across Australia and NZ, we are faced with significant social and community challenges that governments and not-for-profits alone do not seem in a position to resolve. Corporates can and should play a role.
Against this backdrop, shared value, introduced by Harvard Business School academics Mark Kramer and Michael Porter in 2011, proposes a way of creating business success through companies identifying and addressing social problems that intersect with their business to make a positive social impact.
It is a powerful concept and one that deserves close attention in today’s environment where delivering quarter on quarter shareholder returns are evidently not enough.
In this session we will discuss the findings of the report, The 2019 State of Shared Value in Australia and New Zealand, created by A.T. Kearney and Shared Value Project. Nigel Andrade, Managing Director and Partner at A.T. Kearney Asia Pacific, Helen Steel, CEO, Shared Value Project and Danielle Duell, Founder & CEO, People With Purpose, will discuss insights from the report including the 10 steps to embed shared value at an organisational level.
WHEN: 7.30am-9.00am, Wednesday 28 August
WHERE: Credit Union Australia, Level 23, 145 Ann Street, Brisbane
