Through the Executive in Residence program, corporate executives work on-site with leading social entrepreneurs around the world for a period of from two weeks to six months. During this time with the social entrepreneur, the executive tackles a challenge that is critical to the social entrepreneur’s ability to scale their impact.
Simultaneously, by working with the world’s leading social innovators, the executives bring back lessons learned about new innovations, emerging markets, and leadership techniques. At the end of their on-site placement, the executive and social entrepreneur continue to collaborate virtually and gain the opportunity to create shared value partnerships for their organizations.

I encourage every corporate leader to contribute their time and skills to the social sector.
