Programs with a Purpose: featuring Rebecca Henderson





Rebecca Henderson's research and teaching explore what it’s going to take to build just and sustainable capitalism. Drawing on twenty years of research in organizational change, innovation and political theory, Rebecca will lead us in a conversation that will explore ways businesses can change the world by reimagining capitalism so that it is not only an engine of prosperity but also a system that is in harmony with environmental realities, striving for social justice and meeting the demands of truly democratic institutions.

Rebecca Henderson is the McArthur University Professor at Harvard University (the highest honor that can be awarded to a faculty member), where she teaches the acclaimed course "Reimagining Capitalism."

Henderson spent the first twenty-one years of her career at MIT's Sloan School where she was "teacher of the year" and where her research focused on the economics of innovation and on the question of how large organizations can reinvent themselves.

Copies of Reimagining Capitalism will be mailed to the first 50 registrants who would like to receive them.
