Transforming business into a force for good: Learning future skills from Social Entrepreneurs


Time & Location

15 Apr, 14:00 – 15:30 CEST
Online Event

About the Event

This event is organized by the Global Compact Network Switzerland & Liechtenstein in collaboration with Ashoka Europe.

We all agree that building responsible businesses is not an option anymore and the accelerated rate of change is giving organizations even less time to devise new ways of working. We know we need a profound transformation on how we do business, but we don’t have the right answers. CSR won’t be enough. Kersia and Schneider Electric, supported by Ashoka, believe in the power of shifting mindsets and re-skilling employees so they can be owners of change.

Expected outcomes

Participants of this event will gain tools, proven examples, and a strategy to implement a similar approach in their organization.


Gilles Vermot Desroches, Head of Corporate Citizenship, Schneider Electric

Guillaume Tanter, Human Resources Director, Kersia

Jeanine Buzali, North America Director, Changemaker Companies
