Part of the series, Aspen at Roosevelt House — In this session participants had an opportunity to hear from Aspen Institute First Mover Fellows. These individuals are accomplished business professionals who are imagining and implementing new products, services, and management practices within their companies that lead to greater integration of social and environmental impacts into core strategic priorities. The reception was from 5:30-6:00 pm and the discussion was from 6:00-7:00 pm.
Fellows spoke about their leadership journeys — challenges and triumphs — and why they see for-profit business as a powerful force for positive change and a platform for tackling some of our most challenging social and environmental problems.
