Schulich hosts panel discussion at the Shape North America Summit
A panel discussion on the future of capitalism took place at the Toronto Region Board of Trade on July 15th, as part of the Shape North America Summit. Schulich was an official Innovation Partner of the summit that brought together World Economic Forum Global Shapers from around the world.
The panel discussion built on thought leadership initiated in the book, Re-Imagining Capitalism. It also examined a constructive path forward for a capitalist economy that is under increasing pressure to change and re-imagine its impact on society, the environment and prosperity.
The session began with an introduction by Schulich Dean Dezsö J. Horváth, who provided an overview of the impetus behind Re-Imagining Capitalism as well as some of the key findings from the book.
Following that, a panel discussion moderated by Dirk Matten, Associate Dean of Research and contributing author focused on key themes in the book. Other panelists/co-authors included: Tiffany Vogel, Associate Partner, McKinsey & Company; John Stackhouse, Senior Vice President, Office of the CEO at RBC; and Robyn Seetal, Sustainability and Climate Change Manager, Deloitte.
“Schulich is proud to be a part of this important gathering,” said Dean Horváth. “Not only is the global business environment changing, but the very nature of capitalism itself is being transformed before our eyes by the effects of intensified globalization, the rapid pace of technological change, the rise of new business models and disruptive innovation.”
