Skills Workshop Series

We can and should live in a world where companies, communities, society, and the natural world collectively thrive. How do we get there? For starters, by making sure our students are equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to advance economic, social and environmental prosperity.  The Skills Workshop Series was developed with this goal in mind. It utilizes the Principles for Better Business framework to create a three-dimensional student experience that presents these principles in a practical way, with real-world context from industry partners.

This six-session workshop series, hosted in collaboration with the Coalition for Better Business, prepares students for the 21st-century business landscape and helps them understand how together we can create a better world through business.

Students who participate in all six workshops will earn a certificate of completion. Industry partners and other collaborators will be announced closer to the event date. To learn more, or to reserve your spot, email us at
