The Shared Value Initiative was launched by consulting firm FSG and Prof Michael Porter in 2012. The inaugural 2017 Africa Shared Value Summit is modelled on the successful Shared Value Leadership Summit held annually in New York.
The aim of the 2017 Africa Shared Value Summit is to raise awareness and advocate for the success of the strategic implementation of the Shared Value business model which brings about social change while positively impacting profit.
Shift Social Development, the team of women behind the summit, aim to create an annual platform where Shared Value practitioners can share their stories and influence businesses and brands in the creation of Shared Value. Thus embodying their mantra, profit with purpose.
Over the course of two days, the Summit will focus on Shared Value Making an Impact and Africa Taking the Lead.
