About RISE UP: Leadership for a New Era

Challenged by a global pandemic and a human rights crisis, CEOs across the globe are changing the way they lead that is having significant positive impact.  CEOs of mission-driven companies are playing a unique role in this historic shift.  They are challenging prior models of leadership and creating new ways of leading their organizations.  While these changes came out of a response to these crises, they hold promise for significant change.  Will mission-driven CEOs help usher in a broader adoption of a stakeholder model of capitalism or will we return to the ways of the past? 

Big Path’s Impact CEO Summit is an invitation-only virtual convening bringing together top CEOs and C-suite leaders who are scaling positive-impact companies using the power and creativity of business. On April 20, over 200 mission-driven CEOs and leaders will gather virtually to connect, to support, and to learn from one another.

The day will include a combination of core panel topics and engaging small group connection opportunities. Come be part of how businesses are redefining capitalism creating solutions to the world’s pressing social and environmental issues. Capitalism is our engine. Customer transactions are our opportunity. Profit and the pursuit of a better tomorrow are our purpose. Come be part of this relevant and important conversation.
