This conference will convene business and thought leaders — including 40 Chinese CEOs who are part of a joint program between CKGSB and HKS — for a discussion around ways in which companies can accomplish their business goals while also contributing positively to society.
The Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) and the Harvard John F. Kennedy School of Government (HKS) are jointly holding an exclusive symposium on August 7 (Friday) from 12:30-16:30 at the HKS campus in Cambridge, MA.
This symposium will convene business and thought leaders — including 25 Chinese CEOs who are part of a joint program between CKGSB and HKS — for a discussion around ways in which companies can accomplish their business goals while also contributing positively to society.
With the spotlight on corporate practices shining brighter than ever before, companies in the modern age must address the twin challenges of responding to shareholders and giving back to society. Responsible investment, CSR and philanthropic initiatives are relatively new in China, but as an increasing number of Chinese companies go global, they are realizing the need to engage fully in these areas. This event will seek to discuss the ways in which Chinese and US companies can work together for the greater good.
