Shared Value In-Practice Series | Advocating for and motivating shared value in your organisation

One difficult task when embarking on a shared value journey is bringing others along. This is true whether you are working in large or small firm, at the executive level or middle management, or sitting within a sustainability team or a standalone business unit. However, your unique position within your organisation does imply different entry points and obstacles to keep in mind as you navigate. Layusa Isa-Odidi will walk participants through some initial approaches to thinking about how best to advocate for shared value from a range of positions and encourage them to reflect on challenges and entry points within their own organisation.
