Every day, we make hundreds of decisions. Although many of these choices don’t seem to contain an ethical component, we would be well-served to examine that carefully. In so doing, we just might find ourselves doing more good and creating greater value for the world around us. This is the subject of a new book by award-winning scholar and Harvard Business School Professor Max Bazerman titled Better, Not Perfect: A Realist’s Guide to Maximum Sustainable Goodness.

Jean Case, President of the Case Foundation, and the Author of Be Fearless: Five Principles for a Life of Breakthroughs and Purpose, Joins Denver Frederick
The influence that leaders from the tech sector have had on the world of philanthropy over the past two decades has been profound. The creation of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in the year 2000 was certainly a pivotal moment in that regard. But several years before that– in 1997 to be precise– this influence started to be realized when Steve and Jean Case of AOL, America Online, founded the Case Foundation. And it’s a great pleasure to have with us this evening, Jean Case, the CEO of the foundation and the author of a fabulous new book, Be Fearless: Five Principles for a Life of Breakthroughs and Purpose.
