12:15 ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION: Profit with Purpose: Leadership in the Global Economy

If the past two decades are any indication, the role of business in society has changed. It used to be that the standard of success began and ended with financial results. Today, as the global population faces more serious challenges – from resource scarcity to concerns about income inequality and education – companies around the world are committing themselves to creating a profit while also defining their broader contribution to society. Leaders are recognizing the need to put purpose as well as profit at the center of their business strategy. In this special roundtable, we’ll discuss ways companies can leverage their power to do good while growing the bottom line.
