Stories of inclusive capitalism in action

Our flagship narrative publication shares an in-depth look at the economic, social, and environmental issues Council members are addressing, explores how they operate their businesses to make a difference, and reveals insights for others to do the same.

Telling stories is one of the best ways leaders can share what they have learned and inspire others to push their boundaries. Hearing their experiences gives us an opportunity to dig deeper, and it can shape, strengthen, or challenge our perspective.

Our members are acting on their values every day, and we hope you will find inspiration in their work.
