April 6 | Oxford, England
Porter on Progress at Skoll World Forum
Nelson Mandela Lecture Theater, Said Business School

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.

What Works: Advancing social progress in a time of uncertainty
Harpa Conference Center

Anchored by the Social Progress Index, a powerful bench-marking tool to connect decision makers with fresh perspectives on social performance, the second annual What Works global summit will bring together leaders and change makers from business, government, and civil society. Through focused case studies, debate and interactive workshops, participants will leave with new tools and innovative solutions, along with a strengthened network and prospective partners to help drive social change.

Together we will explore how to create positive policy change at every level of government, how social performance can drive opportunities for businesses to get ahead, and how all stakeholders can work together to advance social progress.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to increase your learning and contribute to the dialog about what works in social progress.
