Purposeful Leadership: Strategies to Drive the Renewal of Business and Society
23-24 April 2021, Paulaner am Nockherberg, Munich
A renewal of the social contract between business and society is urgently needed. And the INSEAD alumni community is uniquely positioned to lead the way. The two-day Alumni Forum Europe in Munich provides an exceptional platform to reflect and discuss with senior business leaders, INSEAD faculty and alumni trailblazers what purposeful leadership entails in this new, rapidly changing environment.
The world is facing a number of challenges so pressing that business as usual is no longer an option. Technological disruption, rising inequality, geopolitical shifts and climate change invite us all to rethink the way in which we conduct our businesses, well beyond the classic tenets of managing for the bottom line and shareholder value maximisation.
Learn how to grasp the latest opportunities in a wide range of fields, including transportation and mobility, renewable energy, industry 4.0 and social inclusion. As INSEAD celebrates six decades bringing together people, cultures and ideas, there is no better opportunity to discover how to bolster your company’s strategy in order to make a positive impact on business and society.

We would like to thank the following alumni clubs for their contribution and involvement in the programme of the alumni forum:
The IWiB Global Club is a professional organisation that aims to champion women in business and to accelerate gender balance and more inclusive leadership and culture in organisations. A key tenet to our approach is to engage men as frontline advocates for equality and to support all women alumnae through their diverse career paths by promoting continued education and excellent leadership for INSEAD alumni. The IWiB does so by joining forces with like-minded men to lead together to achieve the full potential of women in business and society.
Our mission is to serve as a hub for all INSEAD research, teaching and dissemination relating to energy and the energy business. We seek to bring together Alumni, current MBAs, Faculty, Researchers and experts together to focus on this most important topic.
