Programs with a Purpose featuring Rebecca Henderson



RSVP Today


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.

In partnership with Hooks Book Events and A Wider Circle, we invite you to join us in a conversation with the author in advance of the April 28 release of her book, Reimagining Capitalism in a World on Fire. Advance copies of the book will be available, and the first 50 copies are free for LGW members, compliments of Hooks Book Events.
