Building Flourishing Organizations Today

Harvard University | Cambridge, MA

November 8-10, 2021


Registration is now open for SHINE Summit 2021, the leading forum for visionary thinking, innovative research and practical solutions that advance corporate sustainability and public health. 

Join us for the most important interdisciplinary conversations on the role of business in advancing human well-being, featuring renowned scientists from across Harvard University and pioneering leaders of industry.

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. We look forward to gathering in person here on campus this fall to explore these critical issues of our time.  We at SHINE are committed to maintaining a healthy and safe event, so are requiring that attendees be vaccinated.  The SHINE Summit will also follow Harvard University guidelines for on campus meetings to reduce risks associated with COVID-19, which may include mask wearing and social distancing.

SHINE Summit 2021 features renowned scholars from across Harvard Business School, Harvard Kennedy School, Harvard Law School and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, taking a cross-disciplinary, research-focused approach to understanding the future of work.  A high-level gathering for senior executives and policymakers across Sustainability, Human Resources, ESG, Social Impact, Health and Well-being, Supply Chain, Corporate Social Responsibility and Philanthropy, the Summit offers transformative thinking, authentic connection and creative collaboration in an intimate, on-campus setting.

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