Redesigning Capitalism: Business as a Force for Good with Jessica Thomas

Wicked Problems, Wolfpack Solutions is a multidisciplinary experience created by NC State for incoming first-year and transfer students. Our own, Jessica Yinka Thomas, director of the Business Sustainability Collaborative, is among the 50 NC State faculty and experts contributing to the five-week course.

Her course, Redesigning Capitalism: Business as a Force for Good”, explores a new model of business, B Corporations (B Corps), and a global movement focused on redesigning capitalism in a way that uses the power of business as an engine to drive positive social and environmental change.

The lecture provides incoming students with an opportunity to learn more about how they can use their power as a stakeholder and their time at NC State to transform capitalism in a way that builds shared well-being, a healthier planet, and an economic system that works for everyone.
