- Professor Chris Laszlo AIM2Flourish Keynote
The Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit's Faculty Executive Director Chris Laszlo, Ph.D., presented a key note at the Leading for Well-being Conference hosted at the OECD headquarters in Paris, France on Feb 23-24.
Laszlo’ opening keynote of the two-day OECD workshop on “Measuring Business Impacts on People’s Wellbeing” was titled “How can the business sector become a positive driver of human well-being?” His presentation centered on results and areas of emerging research from the Fowler Center’s AIM2Flourish initiative.
The Workshop is organized in collaboration with the OECD and others as part of the Leading for Well-being initiative, an international coalition of organizations, scholars, business people, media experts and policy makers seeking to integrate the emerging practice of well-being with more sustainable practices at the corporate, community and policy levels. The Fowler Center is a founding co-sponsor for the Leading for Well-being initiative.
The AIM2Flourish initiative connects students and business leaders worldwide to discover and learn about profitable innovations for achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and a flourishing world for all. AIM2Flourish is the world’s first higher education curriculum, story platform, and recognition program for SDGs business solutions. Students interview a business leader using Appreciative Inquiry questions (a positive, strengths-based approach created at Case Western Reserve University), and then publish a story (425 as of Feb. 2017) on AIM2Flourish.com. The inaugural Flourish Prizes—one for each SDG—will be awarded at the June 2017 Fourth Global Forum: Discovering Flourishing Enterprise, hosted at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH.
