In 2017 the Fortune CEO Initiative convened for the first time, launching an important new initiative for the CEOs of companies committed to addressing major social issues as part of their core business strategies. In 2018 we will gather again for the annual meeting, to be held in San Francisco on June 25-26. Click here to become a 2018 member.
Injecting purpose into the core of your business strategy is a key success factor for modern companies. It’s critical to your company’s ability to attract and motivate the best talent, it deepens bonds with consumers, and it serves as a steadying keel for corporate reputation in an era when the winds of social media can change at a moment’s notice. Moreover, it’s increasingly clear that governments alone are incapable of solving the most intractable challenges, making the role of the private sector more important than ever.
In 2017 we brought together the CEOs of some of the world’s most enlightened companies to exchange best practices and leadership techniques, develop actionable solutions, and track tangible progress, and the conversation will continue in 2018. Participation is by invitation and non-transferable, and benefits of membership in the CEO Initiative will extend beyond the annual meeting.
