What is S&O Institute?
The Society & Organizations Institute (S&O) is an interdisciplinary institute of HEC Paris that brings together more than 60 professors and researchers who work on the issues of meaning, social inclusion and respect for the environment within companies.
With its three centers, Purpose, Inclusive Economy and Climate & Earth, our mission is to contribute to the understanding of the major issues of our time, to accompany all those who have a role to play in the transformations that are required, and to prepare future generations of leaders for their responsibilities.
Our objective is to help rebuild companies and markets on a sounder basis through research, teaching and action, but also by deciphering the issues for the main stakeholders (investors, civil society, regulators, etc.).
