The imperative for tackling societal and environmental challenges combined with an unprecedented health crisis has prompted leaders to rethink the purpose of business. What does it mean to meaningfully incorporate purpose into profit models and how can companies do this at scale?

Hubert Joly has been heralded as one of the "world's best-performing CEOs" after he spectacularly turned Best Buy from the brink of bankruptcy into a top-5 "most sustainable company" (Barron's). Join us as he speaks with CGA's Dr. Christian Busch, Director of the CGA Global Economy Concentration and author of The Serendipity Mindset, about how companies can realign around social impact and sustainability, and other strategies for successful leadership outlined in his new book, The Heart of Business: Leadership Principles for the Next Era of Capitalism.

Dr. Carolyn Kissane, CGA Academic Director and Director of the NYU SPS Sustainability Lab, will share introductory remarks and reflections.
