From Davos to Oxford
From Davos to Oxford: A historic moment for
We’ve often said that despite the challenges, the main missing ingredient is courageous leadership.
What we saw in Davos was courageous leadership embodied. A historic moment with a whole value chain of food CEOs linked together with the care for farmers and billions who are hungry as the red thread that binds us.
A culmination of several years learning and working together as a community.
But this is not enough. Now we need to prepare the next cohort of leaders to help us in what undoubtedly is going to be an even more challenging environment.
For that reason, as shared by my co-founder Valerie in Davos, IMAGINE is building a community of leaders who can partner to put our economies and societies on a better path.
Bringing together corporates, entrepreneurs, and civil society leaders who believe in a Net Positive future – we’re creating a tribe of people that will be able to support each other for many years to come. All active practitioners and working on systems change.
On behalf of Valerie, myself, our Mission Board and alumni CEO Circle, we’re delighted today to share our founding cohort members. See below. Our thanks to them for their commitment to creating a better world through their lives and leadership.
Look forward to an announcement of our next cohorts convening in Oxford this April and September. Will keep you updated on the progress.
