The Aspen Institut e- Business and Society Program
The Business and Society Program is an independently funded policy program at the Aspen Institute, dedicated to developing leaders for a sustainable
global society.
Our Vision Businesses committed to addressing complex global problems - led by executives who possess the skills, values and long-term view required
to consider the social impact of business decisions and who employ social innovation as a key element of business strategy.
What We Do We create opportunities for cross-sector dialogue and partner with business executives and educators to explore new pathways to
sustainability, with a special focus on the training and development of business leaders.

We work with educators to integrate social impact management (PDF) into research and teaching. We convene academic and business leaders to explore
the interdependence of business and wider society and the role of management education in bringing about change. We invest in innovation in MBA
programs and conduct research to understand and track change in business education and student attitudes. Our websites,

www.BeyondGreyPinstripes.organ d www.CasePlace.org, are the leading sources of innovative curriculum in top business schools around the world.

The Aspen Corporate Values Strategy Group (CVSG)seeks to re-

introduce long-term bias in corporate and investment decision-making. A
forum for corporations and institutional investors to identify and promote
changes in policy, business practice, and investment practice for long-term
competitiveness, CVSG most recently hosted convenings in January and
March 2007. "Long-term competitiveness" includes the critical issues of
managing to differing time frames; focusing on forward-looking, strategic
metrics as indications of corporate health; and restoring trust in U.S.
business.

When business managers and leaders with the right combination of courage
and vision leverage business know-how and capacity in pursuit
of solutions to our most complex global challenges, extraordinary things
can happen. Achieving positive, systemic change depends on better
understanding how social innovation takes root in businesses. In Nov
2006, First Movers: Next Steps - Learning Together about Leading

Innovation took place in Chicago, bringing together business executives
and learning professionals to mine the best stories and examples of
business-led social innovation.
