About

The Positive Business Conference will not be held in 2023 and will move to a biennial schedule beginning in 2024.This transition is conducive to maintaining the high level of insightful perspectives, esteemed research, and world-class experience that attendees have come to expect from the Positive Business Conference.

The eighth Positive Business Conference presented by the Center for Positive Organizations (CPO) will bring together top practitioners, intrapreneurs, and academics to engage around ideas and insights for designing and sustaining thriving organizations. This event is an important part of the Michigan Ross mission and strategy and highlights CPO’s leadership in preparing the organizations of today, creating the leaders of tomorrow, and building a sustainable future of meaning for all. The conference hosts sessions with both practical examples of positive business practices being implemented, as well as the cutting-edge research underlying the practices.

Join us May 9-10, 2024 in Ann Arbor, Michigan where we’ll share practices, tools, and real-world examples for how to build and bolster thriving organizations stronger, more connected teams and companies. Together, we’ll recognize, celebrate, and learn from experts and each other on how to create more mindful employees, deeper organizational engagement, and awareness surrounding the positive role of business within our global community.
