Some organizations are champions for social change, while others try to maintain a lower profile. All of them need a dedicated corporate-activism capability.
Many companies aspire to global diversity, but only a few achieve it. Here’s how leading organizations overcome cultural obstacles to build globally diverse teams.
What is a company's purpose? How is purpose different from mission or vision? Ashley M. Grice, CEO of BCG Brighthouse, explores how the power of purpose pushes boundaries of innovation and brings clarity to every aspect of an organization.
There are two things federal government agency leaders must get right in order to ensure their employees are engaged, motivated, and able to drive progress on the organization’s priorities. If new leaders do both things successfully, they will unleash the power and potential of their workforces.
Purpose is becoming even more relevant as societies work to recover from the series of crises that occurred in 2020. Boards, employees, customers, and even regulators are all demanding more purposeful businesses and leaders.
New agency leaders who connect the work their people do with the impact it has on citizens’ lives can motivate their employees, drive progress on critical priorities—and boost overall organizational performance.
In this moment of national reckoning, how can business leaders best show their support and advance racial equity in the workplace? By revitalizing their corporate purpose.

The odds are stacked against leaders who manage major organizational changes. But those who model the behaviors they seek and are persistent, hypervigilant, and flexible can improve their chances of success.
