Business for Social Good



The goal of the Business for Social Good Conference is to create a dialogue around business for social good. We define the social good as actions that benefit society and the individuals that live within in. This can include actions on behalf of businesses that give back in terms of fostering social responsibility, social impact, diversity and inclusion. The conference is unique in that it brings together diverse views of speakers both from Academia and the Business Community.
