Event description
Moderated discussion around the book, Power, For All: How It Really Works and Why It's Everyone's Business

About this event

Please join Professors Julie Battilana (HBS and HKS) and Tiziana Casciaro (Rotman School of Management of the University of Toronto) for a conversation on their new book, Power, for All: How It Really Works and Why It’s Everyone’s Business. Moderated by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, business executive, and HBS Alumna Sheryl WuDunn, the authors will draw upon hundreds of interviews and decades of research to offer an inspiring, democratized vision of power. By unpacking what it is, is not, and how it works, the discussion will illuminate the multiple ways a clear eyed understanding of power can help each of us effect change at home, at work, and in society.

Concentrated, accessible, and life-changing, Power, for All is an essential guide to understanding and navigating power in our relationships, organizations, and society.
