Event Details



A seismic shift is happening that will forever transform our economy and the future of work. In the past, we were in agrarian economy, then an industrial economy, and now we are living and working in an information economy.


What’s next? It is called the Purpose Economy and it is emerging as a key economic driver that is creating a new context in which people and organizations are delivering value. Join Be Social Change and our diverse group of panelists as we explore the integration of purpose into the future of work and how it will impact the way we pursue careers that also help improve the lives of people and the health of our planet.
