Social Intrapreneurship: Transforming Business from Within
February 23, 2018
12:00PM – 7:00PM (ET)
The NYU’s Social Innovation Symposium is a premier event serving and showcasing New York’s commitment to social impact, and brings together ~250 professionals, scholars, and students to explore and share bold ideas addressing how businesses, governments, and organizations can be future-oriented drivers of social innovation.
This year’s theme, Social Intrapreneurship: Transforming business from within, considers how success in business, from local to transnational and from social enterprise to fortune 500, requires social innovation. This goes far beyond corporate social responsibility departments and requires that organizations create a culture of creativity that unites all teams around both financial and impact goals. Through a series of panels, workshops, and roundtables, trailblazers will lead discussions on how each functional role in an organization can drive social innovation, how to maximize innovation to add value to business and society, and what this means for individuals looking to make an impact and be competitive in the ever-changing business landscape.
The event will include a specific panel on how individuals in the legal world contribute to social innovation, through impactful work as a legal service provider to business clients, through internal work as a lawyer within an organization, through work in building appropriate legal framework and policy, through work in corporate governance, and beyond.
