ABOUT US

About the Social Purpose Institute at United Way

In an increasingly turbulent world, having a compelling north star that benefits society, stakeholders and business creates a pathway to business and societal success. In fact, companies whose purpose is a core driver of strategy are more likely to realize successful innovation and consistent revenue growth than competitors.*

At the Social Purpose Institute, we offer a structured and supportive environment that will help you incubate, accelerate and scale social purpose as a way to drive both your business growth as well as your company’s potential for social good.

Our programs, workshops and services have been designed to help business leaders, like you, identify and leverage your organization’s core social purpose to create positive change in your community while building new value for your employees, customers, partners, suppliers and shareholders – all with a view to strengthening your business.

Join like-minded professionals for an intensive, interactive inquiry into the practical challenges of creating buy-in, defining and implementing social purpose in your organization. Discover how to fine-tune strategies, learn best practices and build new relationships with peers who share your vision of creating a better world through business.

Learn how you can unleash your company’s full potential:
