Initiatives are research-fueled “communities of engagement” where faculty, students, and alumni connect with practitioners in the field to develop insights that drive impact. They provide powerful platforms to address complex, multi-dimensional topics that demand a new managerial mindset. HBS Initiatives cover a range of topics, from sectors of the economy to societal issues, that businesses must address in an ever-changing global marketplace.
