PLENARY 1: Conscious Capitalism: How Business Can Uplift Humanity - keynote speaker Raj Sisodia

We stand at a tipping point in the social and economic history of the world. Capitalism has been extraordinarily successful over the past two centuries at raising human living standards, life expectancy, and life satisfaction. But many see it is extracting too steep a price for the prosperity it has enabled.

Traditional capitalism elevates profit above all else and treats people and the planet as a means to that end. No wonder it has failed to capture the minds of intellectuals, the hearts of citizens, and the trust of society. Going forward, we need a better way, rooted in a higher level of consciousness, when it comes to the many ways business impacts the lives of people. Conscious Capitalism is an emerging paradigm that realigns business to the emerging realities of our world and the shifting hearts and minds of people everywhere. Driven by a higher purpose and built on love and care, conscious businesses deliver extraordinary financial performance while creating multiple kinds of positive value for all stakeholders: financial, intellectual, physical, ecological, social, cultural, emotional, and even spiritual.They bring joy, fulfillment, and a sense of meaning to all their stakeholders. Their very existence enriches the world.
