Navigating Crises in a Complex World: Lessons for Business Leadership
In all its dimensions, the war in Ukraine is producing alarming cascading effects across a world already battered by COVID-19 and climate change. The risks of generations lost and Sustainable Development Goals derailed, as well as waves of food insecurity, energy shortages, unfolding debt crises, and social unrest, are real. As CEOs face more significant pressures to lead in arenas outside typical private sector boundaries and complex crises emerge as a lasting norm, the United Nations Global Compact leads a panel on how a principles-based approach can help companies navigate converging crises. The event will feature findings from the newly-released UN Global Compact/Accenture CEO Study, the latest Harvard Business Review research, and company reflections.
