The Future Workplace: 

Building Flourishing Organizations Today


November 8-10, 2021 | Cambridge, MA


Mark your calendar for the most important interdisciplinary conversations on business and well-being, featuring visionary scientists from across Harvard University and pioneering leaders of industry.

The SHINE Summit is the leading forum for visionary thinking, innovative research and practical solutions that advance corporate sustainability and well-being.  An intimate gathering, the Summit brings together leaders of industry, scientists and innovators for transformative thinking, authentic connection and creative collaboration.

Humanity has never before been faced with more rapid change in the workplace.  With this unprecedented transformation comes an incredible opportunity to re-imagine the meaning of work and to re-design the workplace, in greater support of human health and well-being.

Join us for deep explorations, provocative conversations, and research-based strategy sessions about what it means to have humane work and employment, the human impacts of work, the power of caring for employees, trust and transparency, flourishing, compassion, and happiness at work, how to redefine the people and health strategy for business, and what it means to be a healing organization today.

Taking a uniquely interdisciplinary approach, led by visionary thinkers from across Harvard Business School, Harvard Kennedy School, Harvard Law School, Harvard Chan School of Public Health and more, we will thoughtfully re-imagine the future of work together.  Now is the time to innovate workplace sustainability and advance well-being for all.

SHINE is a Harvard Chan School of Public Health research initiative that aims to advance global well-being by putting people at the center of business strategy and organizational culture.  Our research centers around the meaning and impact of work in our lives and the power of organizations to generate positive benefits for society.  We conduct applied research throughout the global value chain, with a focus on identifying ways to help people, especially vulnerable populations, flourish in work and in life (and the connections between the two).
