  • Overview

    One of the greatest innovations of American culture is a long-standing, vibrant, self-governing civil society where people associate freely to form healthy social connections and to overcome barriers to opportunity. The role of business in society is to help people improve their lives by providing products and services they value more highly than their alternatives and do so responsibly while consuming fewer resources. Further, business can play a critical part in a society where all people can achieve their true potential.

    As a Director, Institution of Business you will work to translate vision and strategy into actionable plans with prioritized goals and objectives. You will help develop and promote our vision of what the role of business in society can be. Your primary responsibility will be to partner with our priority initiative and capability leaders to develop, facilitate, and implement knowledge channels and processes that position the team with the right information to make optimal decisions related to the role of business in society.

    We seek to encourage businesses to lean in more on where they can help create more value for society, discourage bad behavior and change the way entrepreneurs and business leaders approach their responsibilities, and foster the next generation of principled entrepreneurs. We believe in a society of equal rights, mutual benefit, openness, and self actualization and know that business has an absolutely critical role to play in ensuring these pillars stand strong for generations to come. When business fulfills its proper role in society, all people can have the opportunity to rise and achieve their true potential. Come join the Stand Together philanthropic community as we foster a national conversation about these ideas, advancing academic research and applied policy solutions to foster a more robust civil society.
