Culturati:
Leaders who know the power of culture. How it works. How to measure it. How to do it right. The annual Culturati Summit convenes an intimate group of C-suite leaders from across the country who prioritize culture and employee engagement. See highlights from the January 2017 Summit at http://culturatisummit.com

Held in Austin, Texas, the Culturati Summit is produced by the Entrepreneurs Foundation, which was founded in 1999 by entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and friends to promote philanthropy and community engagement. Over the years, its mission has evolved to also help entrepreneurs build corporate cultures and employee engagement that contribute to success.

Why the ‘Infodemic’ Opens Doors of Opportunities for Business

The years-long misinformation campaigns amplified by cable news networks and social media — which some have called the "infodemic" — helped plunge the U.S. into multiple crises at once. Does this offer any opportunities to business?

As bad as the 'infodemic' has been, the latest Edelman Trust Barometer report suggests an opening for the U.S. business community.

The pandemic has derailed women's careers and livelihoods. Is America giving up on them?

What are employers doing about this crisis?

—IBM is expanding its ‘returnship’ program that hires and trains women who’ve taken a break from the workforce.

—Target is giving all U.S. employees unlimited company-paid in-home or day-care “backup care” through May.

—And Verizon retrained 8,000 workers so they could work remotely when lockdowns shut stores. It allowed some of those workers to keep working remotely or work part-time when stores reopened, and the company expanded its paid childcare benefits to $15 per hour and $100 per day.

Christy Pambianchi, Verizon’s chief HR officer, acknowledged that the programs are expensive. But so is turnover, she says. “We think it’s really important that our employees know, and society knows, that we’re here for them.”

Jobs lost by women accounted for 100% of the 140,000 net jobs that disappeared from the U.S. economy in December.

To be or not to be

In this hyperpolarized world, how can we not have the workplace, the last bastion of bipartisan collaboration, turn into yet another echo chamber. Are we going to start having liberal places to work and conservative places to work?

Are we going to start having liberal places to work and conservative places to work? “Oh you are a Trump supporter? You don’t pass…”

Our Story

Culturati is a community of CEOs, entrepreneurs, investors and other c-suite leaders who practice and study culture building and share our playbooks. We’re leaders—from technology, finance, banking, the arts, other industries, educational institutions and government—who get the power of culture. We organize impactful and actionable keynotes and breakout sessions for the annual Summit. We share information online, in our recently published book (The Culture Book V1: When Culture Clicks) and at our Culturati Connect events hosted around the country. The next Culturati Summit will take place January 26-27, 2020 in Austin.

The immediate and pressing goal of Culturati is to build a community of leaders across industries who share and learn from each other—who explore the meaning, power, tactics and strategies of building cultures that contribute to success. In terms of long-term impact, we recognize that companies are powerful vehicles of change, now more than ever. Culturati is about holding up incredible organizations and what makes them great, so that organizations around the world can see and follow their example.
