Episode 2: Reshaping Capitalism Around Impact

In this podcast episode, Sir Ronald Cohen, Chairman of the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment, and Gayatri Agnew, Senior Director of Opportunity at Walmart.org, discuss redefining the role of a corporation in society, measuring the social impact of companies, and shifting the way we engage people in the labor market.

There are things we do as a society that are the right thing to do but cost a lot of money. It doesn't all have to become a market-based solution, but talent development has a direct market value. How do we move to a talent-based, impact-based system for how we do talent development, where part of the value and the impact is the wages that individuals are able to earn as a result of the skills that they have?” —Gayatri Agnew
