Globally, the covid-19 pandemic is driving a change of perceptions of the role of business in society. Once seen as the generators of jobs and wealth, companies are increasingly seen as harming people and the environment through a narrow focus on profits. Clients, regulators, employees, consumers, and investors are asking businesses to contribute to helping people and planet.
Strathmore university business school in partnership with Svai have launched an executive programme over five half-days to show leaders how the powerful shared value approach can improve your company’s value to society. This is a powerful opportunity for anyone involved in sustainability, strategy, or leadership in any organisation – corporate, non-profit or state. The course provides a blend of global and African best practise. Find more detail below
