A Human Perspective on Creating Positive Change at a Fortune 500

Gopika Mavalankar July 13, 2022

What does it take to become a change-maker in Corporate America? Join us to hear from senior level corporate leaders who have used their positional power and influence within the country’s biggest for-profit companies to change the equation for workers. 

JFF’s Rose Nakamoto will lead an engaging discussion with two leading Fortune 500 company leaders on steps to enact worker-focused changes. They will dive into specifics on how they – as leaders – were able to leverage their influence at two of the biggest brands in technology and sporting goods to champion workers.  This fireside chat will spotlight the role of corporate ‘change-makers’ and how leaders can push companies to use corporate soft and hard power to positively enact change for workers. 

*Note, we are unable to provide the emails of our speakers until the session is confirmed. We have inputted a JFF member as a placeholder; however, the panel will have two company leaders.
