David Cooperrider Returns as Faculty Director for the  Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit

Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University is pleased to announce faculty member David Cooperrider as the new faculty director of the Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit, effective Feb. 1, 2018. Cooperrider succeeds Chris Laszlo, who is stepping away from the Center to concentrate on developing a school initiative in Quantum Leadership, an approach to organizational transformation driven by a “consciousness of connectedness.”

The Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit emerged from a combination of Cooperrider’s intellectual vision and Chuck and Char Fowler’s exceptionally generous support. Over the years, the Center has hosted Global Forums on such subjects as management by design and the flourishing enterprise, and also led the development of AIM2Flourish, which helps business leaders understand the importance of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and ways that companies can contribute to achieving them. 

“Now that David is returning to lead the Center a second time, I look forward to seeing how he engages this opportunity amid a global context far different than when he founded the Center nine years ago,” says Manoj Malhotra, Dean & Albert J. Weatherhead III Professor of Management at Weatherhead School of Management. “What I know for certain is that he will bring great enthusiasm and creativity to the work, and also seek to inspire others to recognize the great possibilities inherent in doing good and doing well.”
