ONG del conocimiento: Influir para el impacto social
The ESADE-PwC Social Leadership Programme is a joint initiative between the ESADE Institute for Social Innovation and PwC Foundation. Its aim is to generate and disseminate knowledge about leadership in NGOs and other not-for-profits.
The third sector’s development over the last few years has demonstrated the urgent need to prepare a new generation of leaders capable of facing the major social challenges of the future. The ESADE-PwC Social Leadership Programme was thus created in 2008 to teach about social leadership and its traits compared to leadership in other sectors.

This research project helps to improve our understanding of how different stakeholders influence companies to change their behaviour with respect to social and environmental issues, as well as the strategies they adopt to gain greater influence over firms and the factors that make some stakeholders more capable than others to influence companies. The premise of this project is that companies have to look more closely at their stakeholders and the company-stakeholder relation in addition to further exploring the motivations, capacities and strategies of these stakeholders.
