We will kick off SHINE Summit 2021 with a fireside chat on organizational well-being between leading thinkers from Harvard Business School, Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.  This interdisciplinary conversation will bring a public policy, business, and population health lens to human flourishing within organizations – why it matters, how it relates to business performance, and what we’ve learned throughout the pandemic.  Discussion will center on bringing innovation into leadership and making room for caring cultures that are fair and respectful.
