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.

This year's Summit explores the importance of well-being, how to measure it and why fostering well-being throughout the value chain is key to a sustainable business and a healthy world.  Faculty from across Harvard Business School, Harvard T.H Chan School of Public Health, MIT School of Engineering, Stanford Design School and more share the latest academic research to help guide and transform corporate leadership and industry leaders share lessons from their pioneering work to advance health and sustainability. 

The Summit culminates in a workshop on collective impact facilitated by a renowned sustainability leadership educator.  Participants will come together as a thought partnership community to scale impact by activating individual and collective leadership, leaving the Summit with clear, actionable goals.
