Designing Meaningful Work to Build a Sustainable Company: An Interview with Eileen Fisher

The Eileen Fisher company is a certified B corporation with profit sharing, employee ownership, and other benefits for its more than 1,100 employees, and an industry leader in areas such as human rights and environmental stewardship. The Aspen Institute's Maureen Conway will talk with Eileen Fisher about building her financially successful company, pursuing employee ownership, and helping the people in her company shape and be shaped by the company’s purpose.
