Building a Net Positive Pipeline: The Role of HR, Talent, and L&D in a Sustainable Future

Event Date:

October 18, 2023 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm


Virtual Webinar


The impacts of climate change and global inequality present existential threats to humanity, and the need for action has never been more urgent. Many business leaders have recognized this urgency, and sustainability has risen to the top of many corporate agendas. Too often, however, sustainability goals fall victim to a false choice between “doing good” and turning a profit, and few leaders are equipped to drive meaningful change within their organization.

HR, talent, and learning teams can play a powerful role turning sustainability rhetoric into reality by empowering leaders at every level—not just the C-Suite—to recognize and exercise their individual agency to build thriving businesses that have a positive impact on people and the planet. 

Andrew Winston, world-renowned sustainability consultant, knows what it takes for businesses to achieve ambitious sustainability goals, and has witnessed first-hand how groups of committed individuals have transformed practices at some of the world’s biggest companies for the better. 

Join Winston and Stephen Bailey, CEO and co-founder of ExecOnline, for an engaging conversation on actionable strategies to develop sustainable leadership at every level of an organization.

During this 30-minutes webinar, you’ll learn:
– The need to move from Corporate Social Responsibility to a “Net Positive” approach to sustainability
– The unique role HR, talent, and L&D teams play helping equip leaders with the skills they need to drive action toward sustainability goals
– Real-world examples of how corporations have adopted Net Positive practices
– Key takeaways from Winston’s ExecOnline on-demand leadership development program
