One Question was founded in 2016 by Sarah Parsonage and her unwavering belief that conversation can create genuine change in society and in business. Since we asked our very first Question, how can we marry humanity and technology? One Question has continued its mission to close the gap between business and society by asking a single question through the lens of different leaders in business and in society.
Business and society are intrinsically linked and whilst the exploration of the two may have been caught up in words such as purpose, or social good, the reality is that business has a responsibility to serve society, but it can align to profitability.
The two do not need to sit on separate balance sheets or in separate parts of the same building.
By building a network of leaders that span business and society we can better understand our individual responsibility or our business and how that can create a measurable impact on society and our profitability.
