Sri Sri is a noted humanitarian leader who has developed and led programs that provide assistance to people from a wide range of backgrounds—victims of natural disasters, survivors of terror attacks and war, children from marginalized populations, communities in conflict, among others. The power of his message has inspired a wave of service based on spirituality, through a huge body of volunteers who drive these projects forward in critical areas around the globe. In recent years, business increasingly has been viewed as a major cause of not just the global economic crisis but also major social and environmental problems. This calls into question the traditional paradigm of business under which companies have continued to view value creation narrowly, optimizing short-term profits in a bubble while ignoring the most important societal problems that are critical for their longer-term success. A false dichotomy has been set up wherein companies should only be interested in short-term profits which governments need to tackle social problems. We need a new paradigm for business wherein businesses generate economic value by tackling society’s major needs and problems such as health, education and environmental degradation as a core value proposition. This broader notion of shared value can reshape the relationship of business to society and can legitimize business as a central partner in tackling society’s problems. During his keynote address, Sri Sri will be speaking about how spirituality can help strengthen human values and reinforce ethics in business.Sri Sri Awards and Nomination
