Allan Gray Centre for Values-Based Leadership

Driving business with purpose, sustainability & responsible practices

 
 

The Centre was established in 2011 at the UCT Graduate School of Business through the repurposing of a previous GSB grant from Mr Allan Gray. 

We set out to ask difficult questions about the assumptions supporting our current, mostly mechanistic, business management models.

Specifically, we explore whether profit and shareholder value should continue to be the exclusive drivers of business, or if values, purpose and meaning might be a more effective driver for the 21st Century.
