Ideas Worth Teaching Awards Celebration: Leadership in an Upended World

September 30, 2020  • Business and Society Program

Please join the Aspen Institute Business & Society Program for a celebration of our 2020 Ideas Worth Teaching Awards.

The pandemic and the social and economic crises of 2020 have revealed in new ways inequities in our societies and opened new sightlines into the interdependence inherent in modern society. What are the skills and frameworks that business executives need now to build a more just and sustainable version of capitalism for the future? And, even as higher education navigates unprecedented times, how might business schools leverage and support this awakened imperative for change?

Please join us for an important discussion between Dan Schulman, CEO and President of PayPal, and Kerwin Charles, the Indra K. Nooyi Dean of the Yale School of Management, moderated by Judy Samuelson, Executive Director of the Aspen Institute Business & Society Program. Immediately following the conversation, we will announce the winners of our 2020 Ideas Worth Teaching Awards—nine innovative courses from around the world that are rising to the challenges of this moment, and shining a spotlight on what is possible in management education now.
