Event Details

Drawing on insights from the Social Progress Index, Professor Michael E. Porter of Harvard Business School will show how the United States’ current political rhetoric and surge in populism is a symptom of a model in crisis. The real and solvable problem is that economic development is not delivering social progress. Porter will connect the country’s underperformance on the Index with a legacy of flawed policies and practices, and share evidence and wisdom that can help government, business and civil society better meet people’s basic needs, provide a foundation of wellbeing and create opportunity for everyone to reach their full potential. As chief advisor to the Index, he will make the case that it is balanced, data-driven solutions that will heal the divided nation, not more hyperbole.

Social Progress Imperative

The Social Progress Imperative’s mission is to improve the quality of lives of people around the world, particularly the least well off, by advancing global social progress. The Social Progress Index provides a robust, holistic and innovative measurement tool to guide countries’ choices to enable greater social progress and foster research and knowledge-sharing on the policies and investments that... will best achieve that goal. Social progress is defined as the capacity of a society to meet the basic human needs of its citizens, establish the building blocks that allow citizens and communities to enhance and sustain the quality of their lives, and create the conditions for all individuals to reach their full potential.
