Business and Policy Leader Events

Social Innovation Symposium

Social Innovation Symposium
On February 26th, 2021, NYU’s Law, Wagner School of Public Policy, and Stern School of Business will host the annual Social Innovation Symposium. Experts from an array of industries and backgrounds will come together to inspire a new generation of change-makers.

This year’s theme, Human Centered Capitalism; Leveraging Resources to Drive Impact, considers the shift in expectations for how organizations conduct business with respect to people, planet and profits. New generations seek out employers with a social mission, investors demand not only high returns but higher standards for where their money is invested, and corporations continue to see their business models disrupted by challenges of sustainability and social impact. As these trends accelerate and the urgency grows greater in coming years, we seek to step ahead of these problems and explore where we're headed.

Join professionals and panelists from law firms, nonprofits, and private enterprises as we rethink the future of Business. Partners and attending companies include: Applegate Farms, Closed Loop Partners, Barclays, BNP Paribas with more to be confirmed. Virtual event will take place from 11AM-2PM with the specific schedule of panels found on our event page.
