International Conference Dynamics of Inclusive Prosperity

On 29 and 30 November, the Erasmus Initiative Dynamics of Inclusive Prosperity is organising a conference on ways of fostering prosperity without causing social and political exclusion.
Aligning business, government and society for long-term, inclusive prosperity. The Erasmus Trustfonds, the World Economic Forum, UN Global Compact and Philips are partners in this conference. Frans van Houten, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Royal Philips and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Erasmus Trustfonds, is one of the speakers.

Fostering inclusive and sustainable prosperity implies private and public sector changes and leadership that is aimed at long-term benefits. The ability of future generations to enjoy ‘prosperous’ lives depends on our resolve today to radically transform how we manage businesses and govern societies in fairer and more equitable ways. During this Conference, particular attention will be given to the Compact for Responsive and Responsible Leadership, sponsored by the World Economic Forum International Business Council and launched at the Annual Meeting in 2017. The Compact aims at creating a corporate governance framework with a focus on the long-term sustainability of corporations and the long-term goals of society.

On Thursday 29 November, the first day of the conference will offer key notes from renowned speakers and multiple ‘mix & match’ events for bringing together leaders from the worlds of business, government, NGO and academia to discuss the transition towards more responsive and responsible leadership.
