Business as an Agent of World Benefit
Business is a powerful force for change in the world. We call it Business as an Agent of World Benefit (BAWB). We know there are exciting stories everywhere about how the business sector is putting its people, imagination and assets to work for the benefit of humanity. But until now, there hasn’t been a way for all these exemplary stories to be seen and amplified. This short video introduces AIM2Flourish, the world’s first global action-learning platform showcasing business innovations that solve humanity’s greatest challenges. Business students use the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, along with Appreciative Inquiry (strength-based interviews) to search out and report on world-changing innovations. We will celebrate the best-of-the-best business innovation stories with the Flourish Prizes at the Global Forum June 14-16, 2017.
AIM2Flourish is supported by the Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit in the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University. AIM2Flourish is co-sponsored by the UN Global Compact PRME, GRLI and other business partners. To learn more, contact Roberta Baskin, AIM2Flourish Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
