Historic Opportunity: The global pandemic, racial reckoning, and climate emergency reveal a deeper, more fundamental problem: Our current economic system is not designed to create shared wellbeing on a healthy planet. This is our opportunity to reimagine and redesign what comes next.
Our Network: Imperative 21 is a business-led network driving a RESET of our economic system so that its purpose is to create shared wellbeing on a healthy planet. Network stewards include B Lab, The B Team, Chief Executives for Corporate Purpose (CECP), Common Future, Conscious Capitalism, the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN), JUST Capital, and Participant, collectively representing more than 134,000 businesses across 80 countries and 150 industries, more than 25 million employees, $11 trillion in revenues, and $21 trillion in assets under management.
Our Approach: Imperative 21 drives the RESET through a variety of pilots, collaborations, and coalitions of allies across existing and emerging power: from CEOs, investors, and policy makers, to civil society leaders, workers, and culture makers.

The Lead for Narrative and Strategic Communications will drive our work to: 1) shape and reinforce the overarching narrative of an economic RESET consistent with the Imperatives for Economic System Change to Design for Interdependence, Invest for Justice, and Account for Stakeholders; and 2) ensure that narrative is connected to strategic communications and resources that center equity across the Imperative 21 network (I21).
The Lead will accomplish this by building a world-class team to ensure the sustained and deepening engagement and activation of: 1) the communications leads from each I21 steward organization, strategic partners, and a growing network of allies; and 2) the I21 Culture Coalition in a process of co-creation and co-execution of a strategy to use story and data to shift mindsets about how we got here, what challenges we’re facing, and most importantly, what’s possible and what’s attractive for everyone about the future we can create together.
