Students Shoulder-to-Shoulder (SStS) will once again host its annual Global Solutions Forum in Vail, partnering this year with the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business to offer a three-day, intimate conference that features a wide range of programming to inspire and support ethical leadership.

The Forum, which will be held Oct. 24-26 at the Arrabelle and Antlers in Vail, will offer a wide range of programming that inspires and supports ethical leadership, allowing for collaboration and networking opportunities throughout. Attendees can choose between a business track, appropriate for young professionals seeking ethical leadership training and networking within a professional environment, and an education track, appropriate for education leaders seeking the same.

“The Global Solutions Forum unites leaders in the business, nonprofit, and education sectors to discuss ethical leadership, but also apply the discussion to actionable change within our society and ourselves,” explained Bob Bandoni, Executive Director for SStS. “Now more than ever society needs ethical leaders and we’ve expanded our Forum this year to expand the impact. This Forum will serve as a great opportunity for collaboration and professional development.”

This year’s Forum will feature workshops covering topics such as:

  • Varying models of CSR
  • Purpose-driven organizations
  • A culture of giving back
  • Generational mentoring for future leaders
  • Ethics in a digital age
  • Role of compassion in leadership

“Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver is delighted to partner with Students Shoulder-to-Shoulder as a co-sponsor of the Global Solutions Forum,” said Dr. Rosanna Garcia, PhD, Walter Koch Endowed Chair of Entrepreneurship and Associate Professor of Marketing, Daniels College of Business and Douglas Allen, Associate Professor, Management, Daniels College of Business. “We anticipate that this space will offer individuals from the business, education, not-for-profit and governmental sectors the opportunity to come together to explore ethical and compassionate leadership as a key ingredient for successful and sustainable enterprise.”
