From Tima's Desk

“At this time of unprecedented change and disruption, ideas about sustainable business are evolving quickly. Leaders can fuel critical change by actively mobilizing good ideas on the frontier of knowledge.

In writing from my desk, I hope to bring some of those good ideas to you. I highlight published and in-process articles I’ve read, observations I’ve made, and conversations that have piqued my interest and provoked my thinking. I hope my musings will similarly provoke yours.”

— Dr. Tima Bansal

The coronavirus and climate change are very different problems. But the global response to the coronavirus gives me hope that we can tackle other major threats.
