On 17 June 2023 at INSEAD Europe Campus, the Hoffmann Institute is hosting a Business and Society Summit to take stock of and celebrate 5 years of work on sustainability at INSEAD. The Summit will review progress and explore trends to consider to further integrate sustainability in business education. Speakers will include INSEAD faculty, students, alumni as well as external experts and members of the Hoffmann Institute Advisory Board. The Summit will be held in conjunction with the INSEAD Force for Good Campaign Celebrations.

The Campaign Celebrations commemorate the joint success of The INSEAD Campaign: A Force for Good, which has achieved over €300 million in funds raised, at 50% alumni donor participation including a generous gift by André and Rosalie Hoffmann which founded the Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society. This extraordinary display of generosity and support from the INSEAD community will enable us to amplify our impact as a force for good by developing socially responsible global leaders able to tackle today’s challenges head on.
