Why Attend

Corporate leaders come to Harvard University’s SHINE Summit to learn from and network with influential thought leaders and visionary scientists – a highly curated group from across disciplines – who share the latest research findings, frameworks and strategies for corporate well-being and sustainability practices.    
SHINE Summit attendees represent a dynamic mix of senior executives from across Human Resources, Employee Well-being, Social Responsibility & Social Impact, EHS and Sustainability, Compliance, Labor & Human Rights, Supply Chain, ESG & Responsible Investing, and Transformation & Innovation who are excited about common purpose, business as a platform for social change and the opportunity to share ideas openly in a focused, intimate setting. 

In line with SHINE’s holistic, collaborative approach, we encourage colleagues from across departments to register and offer discounted group rates to faciliate that.
