Business leaders have a role to play. We, I think at times… haven't embraced the fact that we have agency relative to these issues, that these challenges that society faces can be addressed through business leaders... we don't need to be observers to these changes.

After a decade of extraordinary and fundamental shifts, business leaders are called to consider new priorities. Many are embracing the power of socially responsible leadership as an agent to forge positive change. At the same time, technological advances are having an ever-expanding influence and will transform the art of the possible across societies, economies, and businesses. How can leaders move their businesses into the future while making the world a better place?
In these disruptive times, the name of the game is being dynamic, versatile, and agile. Many corporate leaders are used to working inside their own four walls, except for when they’re talking to customers or suppliers. And here, it’s really about pulling together different leaders to come up with new ideas together… doing things for good. At Deloitte, we do see some of the world’s most intractable problems… and no organization can solve them by themselves.
—Jessica Kosmowski, US Ecosystems & Alliances leader, Deloitte Consulting LLP
