Why Values Matter

It seems that companies are required to provide more and more social good – whether it’s donating to charity, becoming a benefit corporation, or endorsing a humanitarian stance. However, there is significant push back from implementing such initiatives, as they can reduce profits for shareholders. However, some business leaders have found ways to do both.

These business leaders are recognized by the The Malden Mills Corporate Kindness Award, awarded by Values-in-Action/Project Love. Stewart Kohl and Dina Dwyer-Owens are the recipients this year. The Town of Gander, Newfoundland, Canada (represented by the Mayor, Honorable Percy Farwell) will also be awarded the Rescuer of Humanity Award, given by Values-In-Action/Project Love.

Please join the three recipients as we discuss the power of kindness and how embodying principles and values can benefit humanity and the bottom line.

Panelists include:
The Honorable Percy Farwell, Mayor, Town of Gander, Newfoundland
Dina Dwyer-Owens, Co-Chairman, Dwyer Group
Stewart Kohl, Co-CEO, Riverside Company
