About this event

Today’s leaders are often faced with challenges that oppose social and environmental concerns with financial profitability, creating tensions when inevitably there are no right answers.

It is time to provide leaders with tools to adress contracditions as recurrent challenges, and embrace tensions with tolerance and creativity. 

As part of the partnership between the Amélia de Mello Foundation and Nova SBE, this year, the second annual Leadership & Society Forum will be held on May 24th. The theme of the event is Paradoxes and Sustainability, which aims to respond to these and many other challenges, in an open model of sharing and interaction between academics, the corporate world, and society in general.

Fundação Amélia de Mello’s Leadership Chair & Nova SBE would like to invite you to attend this exclusive and groundbreaking event at Nova SBE Carcavelos Campus.

Check the full program.
