Talk by INSEAD Professor (and HBS PhD) Jasjit Singh: Thinking Strategically about Impact
August 28 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm SMT
The Harvard Business School Club of Singapore invites HUAAS members to a discussion with INSEAD Professor (and HBS PhD) Jasjit Singh. This event is organised in collaboration with the INSEAD Alumni Association in Singapore. Prof Singh will talk about how market outcomes do not always align with societal objectives, such as on issues like environmental degradation or social inequality. Who should be addressing these challenges? We will argue that different kinds of organizations, such as non-profit vs. for-profit, are best seen as complementary means of pursuing societal progress. We as individuals need to identify important societal needs we care about, and contribute to these in a manner consistent with our personal goals as well as the unique advantages and constraints of the context in which we pursue these.
