We are at a moment where unprecedented forces—including a pandemic, the war in Ukraine, supply chain failures, a reimagined reality of work, and new technologies—are dramatically reshaping our world faster than we have yet been able to reshape our institutions, our leadership, and ourselves. We need frameworks, metrics and a community to help address these changes now.
In collaboration with our partners, The HOW Institute for Society will host a one-day, in-person summit bringing together diverse leaders from varied fields—including business, government, education, non-profits, the military, religion, sports, media and entertainment—to stimulate and inspire fresh thinking and concerted actions to help answer the most vital questions we face as a society.
Urgency and action are at the core of the Summit. The agenda will focus on the shared belief that institutions must be guided by values and shaped by moral leaders, that moral authority and formal authority must be united to create meaningful and enduring impact, and that trust and shared truths are essential to bringing people together as communities, organizations and collaborators. We will navigate how leaders can and ought to lead in our now-fused world where political, geopolitical, social, environmental, biological, humanitarian, ethical, and moral issues—that were once considered tangential to an organization’s agenda— are increasingly viewed as inescapably at the center of it.
A future that includes dynamic capitalism, vibrant democracy, healthy communities and free societies depends on the rise of moral leadership and values-driven behavior. Join us.
