Fortune’s mission is to change the world by making business better. Fortune’s CEO Initiative (CEOI) brings this mission to life by convening an exclusive community of the world’s most influential and transformative leaders, who are driving positive societal change through their purpose-driven businesses.

With the shared belief that business has a responsibility beyond profit, these leaders are actively shaping the zeitgeist by developing best practices on sustainability and social impact for their stakeholders and society—as well as addressing business’s role in geopolitics, the responsible deployment of A.I., public–private partnerships, and more.

Leveraging some 100 years of groundbreaking journalism, thought leadership, and convening power, the Fortune CEO Initiative is meeting the moment to make business better.

Participation is by invitation only. For more information on joining, email
