The Fowler Center was honored to welcome Raj Sisodia to speak to Weatherhead's first-year MBA cohort during their November MBA Workshop on Business as an Agent of World Benefit. Sisodia is Co-founder and Chairman Emeritus of Conscious Capitalism and FW Olin Distinguished Professor of Global Business and Whole Foods Market Research Scholar in Conscious Capitalism at Babson College. As well, he is a member of the Fowler Center's Advisory Board.
Sisodia spoke about how businesses will thrive if and when they put people first and lead for a higher purpose with conscious leadership, culture and management. He gave a history of capitalism and urged the audience to consider the real purpose of business and the impact that each of us, as business leaders, can make in the world. In addition to MBA students, the audience included faculty, staff, alumni and local business leaders. We are so grateful to Dr. Sisodia for coming to campus to share his thought leadership and expertise with our students. Special thanks also to Dean Malhotra and Vice Dean Gupta for joining us. You can watch Sisodia's address here.
Following Sisodia's address, students met with local business leaders to learn about their business-for-good innovations and sustainable practices. Read more about this connection between students and business leaders on the Weatherhead blog: November MBA Workshop.
