Forums with a difference
Forums that produce assets

There are many conferences devoted to business and society issues: ours are different. The Council on Business & Society’s Global Forums are unique in that they bring leading international stakeholders face-to-face on a key theme of debate affecting the future of business and society. Prominent business leaders, government policy makers, heads of major NGOs, academics, and business students are invited to offer their unique perspective on the chosen issue to develop a solution to shape the future.   

Our Forums are not only a place for debate. Each Forum event sees the production of tangible assets in the form of executive summaries, white papers, videos, business and society cases, position statements, practical insights and the creation of course materials.
