We believe it is vital to state clearly to the world the set of our beliefs about Inclusive Capitalism. As such, we start with our Statement of Guiding Principles for Inclusive Capitalism. Knowing that words alone are not enough, each of us is making a series of commitments about how we will operate our institutions so that they help achieve Inclusive Capitalism. These commitments are forward-looking statements based on current goals, expectations and assumptions, which are not guarantees of future performance.

Summary

Pitch the Moravian University to establish the 29Bison Institute to cultivate knowledge encouraging business practices and investment in ways that promote sustainability and extend economic opportunities and benefits by September 2021.

Objectives

The Moravian University 29Bison Institute for Inclusive Capitalism will create and share knowledge encouraging business practices and investment in ways which promote sustainability and extend economic opportunities and benefits to all.

  • Provide professional experiences for undergrad, grad and professional students
  • Create a container for interdisciplinary study, research, and industry and civic collaboration
  • Expand and offer real-world applications of liberal arts education
  • Promote a talent pipeline, research and development collaborator for 29Bison and other collaborator/sponsor organizations
  • Catalyze a better and more inclusive world
