    About Us

    Together we can create the conditions for the next great episode in global history

    The Global Forum for Business as an Agent of World Benefit has a motto: don’t be despairing, be curious. Since its conception in 2006, it has invited executives, entrepreneurs, design thinkers, and next generation leaders to strive toward economic and social excellence.

    The Fowler Center

    “Sustainability is here to stay,” said Chuck Fowler, “and it’s not just the right thing to do but it’s a business innovation engine—doing good and doing well are totally and mutually reinforcing, and sustainability provides an overarching ideal and storehouse of leadership tools to make it so.”

    The Fowler Center was established in 2009, with the timely and generous gift of Chuck and Char Fowler. Originally named the Fowler Center for Sustainable Value, the donation launched the inquiry into Business as an Agent of World Benefit initiative, started in 2002, to a new level of priority, scale, and scope as an interdisciplinary center of excellence. The Fowler Center’s aim is clear: to build on and leverage the legacy and to create the finest research, education, and applied center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit in the world.
