WHO IS BEHIND IT

This web page has been created by Berlin based anthropologists engaged in using anthropology in different ways. The Global Business Anthropology Summit, held annually, in different places in the world, is a collaboration among anthropologists from an array of professional environments across a global network. The aim of this network is to continue to draw out and learn from the experiences of these practitioners, exposing new ways and conditions for collaborating with different institutions, organizations, and companies, using anthropology in work.
