Creating Culture for Stakeholder Eco-systems

Sheila Siden May 12, 2021

Social capital, social enterprise, social impact: we have a theme here. Our sector is rethinking and reimagining an economy where everyone thrives. Shifting toward stakeholder capitalism, social and natural ecosystems take on new importance where shareholders’ returns once rated highest above all, excluding all else.

Stakeholder awareness underpins every part of our movement:

  • JEDI: justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion
  • Climate Action
  • Impact Investing
  • Sustainable Development

Our movement sees how stakeholders are interconnected and interdependent within the ecosystem that leaders and enterprises create.

Stakeholder capitalism up-levels stakeholders’ importance.

However, dominant leadership culture has taught entitlement and even exploitation. We are going into a culture shift with unchecked biases.

What do leaders need to do to really shift our out-dated approach to partnership to create stakeholder awareness, trust, and value?

In this SOCAP Open, we will get creative, have fun, and have hands-on practice using new tools and methodologies for establishing reciprocal stakeholder relationships.

Creativity is not the clever rearranging of the known. ~ Viola Spolin
