Social Progress and the World Bank

On October 29, 2015, at the most significant presentation on social progress yet made at the World Bank Headquarters in Washington, DC, Social Progress Imperative Advisory Board Chair Professor Michael E. Porter presented the Social Progress Index to a packed room at an event hosted by the World Bank’s Chief Economist Kaushik Basu. Porter explained the synergies between the Bank’s ‘shared prosperity’ principle and the Social Progress Index at “Social Progress: The Next Development Agenda.” Watch the video. See the slide deck.
