Social Impact Forum

December 7, 2017
Washington, DC

More than ever, American companies, fueled by passionate consumers and active investors, are working to promote social good as part of their bottom lines. At The Atlantic's Social Impact Forum, we heard from public and private sector leaders encouraging corporate behavior for impact.

At the Social Impact Forum we looked at the future of the social impact business model and asked how companies are working to make social impact part of their bottom line.
