Russell Reynolds Associates and MIT Sloan Launch Sustainable Leadership Program
Russell Reynolds Associates, a global leadership advisory firm, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Sloan School of Management’s Office of Executive Education have co-developed a sustainable leadership program, designed to equip C-suite executives with the skills they need to pivot their organizations to a more sustainable future.
The three-day immersive program, Sustainable Leadership: Mindsets and Skillsets to Drive Purpose and Impact, aims to help C-suite executives become sustainable leaders, capable of integrating sustainability across business strategy and operations.
Led by MIT faculty members, along with consultants who have tangible experience in implementing sustainability agendas in the business world, the program will empower leaders to understand and tackle sustainability challenges.
Course participants will gain insight into the convergence of environmental and socio-economic sustainability with business, and learn how to tackle multi-dimensional sustainability issues while also playing to win in increasingly competitive markets.
“As global business leaders, we have a responsibility to move society forward in a positive way, to help solve the systemic social and environmental challenges that impact the world around us,” said Constantine Alexandrakis, Chief Executive Officer of Russell Reynolds Associates. “This program allows us to develop future generations of sustainable leaders to help improve the way the world is led.”
“We hope this program will create ripple effects as leaders create and implement the initiatives and business practices needed to build a prosperous, equitable, and sustainable world,” said John D. Sterman, the Jay W. Forrester Professor of Management at the MIT Sloan School of Management and Co-director of the MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative. “Tackling these global challenges requires the commitment, energy, and ingenuity of individuals and businesses working together for the benefit of all—businesses, investors, employees, and people everywhere. We seek to catalyze action by engaging business leaders in every industry and sector.”
Upon completion of the 3-day program, participants will earn a certificate of completion from MIT Sloan Executive Education for the Sustainable Leadership: Mindsets and Skillsets to Drive Purpose and Impact program.
