With more than 1,100 registrants, the event featured two afternoons full of thought-provoking content, valuable insights, and inspiring stories from top business leaders and social impact experts.
Check out highlights from the event below and watch the recordings here.
Fast Company Editor-in-Chief Stephanie Mehta sat down with Allstate Corporation President and CEO Tom Wilson to discuss the value of purpose-driven organizations at all times, but particularly during times of change. Watch the full conversation.
"Corporate resilience is like your own personal resilience. If you know what you want to do, then it gives you that energy to stick with it if it’s important to you. The corporation has to be important to individuals and the corporation has to be important to society." - Tom Wilson, President and CEO, The Allstate Corporation
Investing in the Future of Small Businesses
“When the pandemic hit, we doubled down. We lifted up small businesses that were disproportionately impacted and those that had historically less access to capital.”
- Madge Thomas, President, American Express Foundation
Purpose and Inclusive Growth
"While we talk about it being a time of great resignation, it’s also a time of great intention and purpose, where people are really focused on what they are doing and what it means to them, and organizations have become a part of that." - Tamika Tremaglio, Greater Washington Managing Principal, Deloitte
Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises Embracing Mental Health
"If workers are happy and healthy, not only do they do more for the workplace, but it helps lift up society over all. Positive mental health in the workplace spills over to the family, the community, and is part of what we really need more than ever right now." - U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy
Lessening the Loss: Investing in Local Education
"If we’re looking to build resilient communities, workforce is such a critical part of that investment. As we look at which the pace of the industry is going, we know the jobs in science and technology are some of the fastest growing worldwide and it’s absolutely critical to be investing in those jobs to tackle some of the global challenges.” - Asha Varghese, President, Caterpillar Foundation
