Doing Good Doing Well (DGDW) is an annual conference entirely organized and run by IESE Business School students. Since 2001, the school’s Responsible Business Club promotes the conference and now it has become an annual tradition and has grown to the largest student-run conference in Europe. It’s an opportunity to hear directly from professionals about the challenges and opportunities they experience on a day-to-day basis, and how their jobs and organizations are interconnected with society. The conference format is typically divided into keynote speeches, panel discussions, and networking events, divided in 2-days.
19th Doing Good Doing Well Conference
Game Changers Accelerating Responsible Business
Doing Good Doing Well 2022 will take place at IESE Business School, Barcelona Campus, on March 1st and 2nd, 2022.
We live in a world experiencing exponential environmental change that we can no longer ignore. In countries around the world we see the effects of environmental degradation, climate change as well as social inequality on an ever-increasing basis.
The Covid-19 pandemic has magnified the risk we face, highlighting the interconnectedness of our planetary society. It has become clear that we are living in a decisive decade, where the actions we take now will have a profound impact for decades to come. These are the problems of our lifetimes, not of future generations. Identifying, developing and scaling solutions in sustainability are therefore a necessity, requiring the private sector to play a leading role.
How are companies transforming their strategies and operations to meet their sustainability goals? How are entrepreneurs disrupting industries through creating positive impact? What are the tools required for everyone to make effective change happen?
Join DGDW 2022 and discover the trends, technologies and companies that are rapidly accelerating positive change across industries and will be a feature of your career in the future.
We are excited to bring you experts from across different industries to discuss Game Changers in impact investing, sustainable food, circular economy, education, blue oceans and more.
