The Private Sector as Change Agent for Social Good: Hope by Design

Social entrepreneurship is a growing movement of successful business leaders who form companies that directly benefit those at the bottom of the social and economic stratum. Its ethical imperative can be found in the bedrock belief of all religions: By helping our neighbor, we help ourselves. This session will examine how to build a flourishing global economy that promotes peace and democracy - one company at a time. Connie K. Duckworth, Jonathan Greenblatt, The Rev. Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite are included in this panel. The Hon. Madeleine K. Albright introduces and Judith F. Samuelson moderates.

Festival: 2006
