Today’s corporate executives don’t just lead profitable enterprises. Managers must also understand the impact of globalization, competitiveness and social responsibility on their business models. The effects of climate change and associated sea-level rise are expected to increase and redefine risk across sectors, public or private.

Integrating traditional economic models with conservation, workplace diversity and democratic governance differentiates leading international brands from the status quo. Professionals who don’t understand climate risk on investor portfolios or look bewildered when asked about the relationship between sustainable development and the bottom line are at a disadvantage for investment and talent.

Attendees will interact with senior sustainability professionals from South Florida and discover unique career paths within a variety of local industries.
