The Arison Group mission is to be a catalyst for bringing about positive change in the world, realizing the vision of Doing Good through values-led business and social investments. This vision is at the heart of The Doing Good Model. 

The Doing Good Model by Shari Arison and the Arison Group is a values-based model for positive creation worldwide. It is a practical day-to-day tool for integrating values at the core of businesses, nonprofit organizations, communities, and individuals, combining 13 fundamental human values in any activity, for the benefit of society, economy, and ecology.

Led by Shari Arison, owner of the Arison Group, the model was developed by the Arison Group in partnership with a team from leading American universities Harvard, Thunderbird, George Mason and Babson College. This collaboration combines the Arison Group's hand-on experience with multidisciplinary academic research, to create a unique values-based tool, while it also puts into practice the long-term vision of growing the next-generation ethically oriented corporate executives.

The Doing Good Model

Implementation of The Doing Good Model has already begun at the Arison Group companies and organizations worldwide, as a simple and hands-on tool for integrating values in their core activities and routine decision making processes. As part of this ongoing process, cross-organizational forums were established to encourage involvement at every level, by brainstorming ideas together, devising practical tools, and enhancing values-based activities worldwide.

To grow the circles and share The Doing Good Model with larger crowds, a unique online platform was developed for the model. This interactive platform showcases real-world case studies and examples from the Arison Group, demonstrating innovative sustainable strategies, alongside clips and experiential activities that raise the discussion of values-driven leadership worldwide.

In 2013, an Endowed Professor of Doing Good Values was established at George Mason University to collaborate and further research and mold the Doing Good Model into an accredited curriculum, which advances values-driven leadership in all aspects of life. In 2013, Shari Arison was named Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from George Mason University, acknowledging her work and the model for making a positive difference in the world.
In 2015, Shari Arison published her bestseller The Doing Good Model: Activate Your Goodness in Businessserving as a guide to infusing your business with the power of Doing Good. It's also a call to action for business owners, leaders, and employees in all industries across the world to become agents for change.
