The Global Solutions Forum

An international collaboration of SStS partners

Now, more than ever, society needs ethical leaders

The 2018 Global Solutions Forum, in partnership with University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business, gathers those who embrace the virtue of social responsibility and aim for actionable change. Join leaders in the business, nonprofit, and education sectors to discuss to discuss the fundamental role of ethical leadership in addressing this gap between what is and what ought to be.  

Join us for a three-day, intimate conference that features a wide range of programming to inspire and support ethical leadership. Attendees can choose between the Education Track or Business Track, but will also have ample time for mixing and collaboration. The 2018 Global Solutions Forum will take place from October 24 to October 26, 2018, in Vail. Register by August 31 to take advantage of early bird pricing.
