Companies across industries—including technology, financial services, agriculture, and more—are beginning to play a new role in education. These companies are tackling education issues through their core business strategy and operations. In doing so, they are finding new ways to become essential partners for schools, nonprofits, and governments in helping to raise levels of student and workforce achievement.

This one-day conference, hosted by the Shared Value Initiative, FSG, and Stanford Social Innovation Review, will bring together business, education, and nonprofit leaders eager to explore new models to help address the world's educational needs. Through this conference, we will:

  • Explore trends driving companies to engage in education in a new way.
  • Discover how business, nonprofits, schools, and governments can create partnerships that improve education at scale.
  • Offer practical recommendations for how corporate, government, and civil society leaders can work together to create greater value for society.

Speakers include Sir Michael Barber, Chief Education Advisor of Pearson; Karen Cator, CEO of Digistal Promise; Bill Goodwyn, CEO of Discovery Education; Diane Tavenner, CEO of Summit Public Schools, and many more!
