The Promise for Sustainability in Employee Activism

Date: 10/17/2019

Time: 6:30pm
Where: LMHQ, 150 Broadway, New York NY

Join diversity & inclusion expert Jennifer Brown for a conversation about how workplace activism has potential to meet sustainability goals.
 
While trust in our institutions is on the decline, business is being looked to for solutions to issues from climate change to immigration and criminal justice. Employees are also leading the charge, leading petitions, staging walkouts and introducing shareholder proposals, asking CEOs to take a public stance and lead the charge. This new wave of employee activism may be a tipping point to achieve a more sustainable future. Join Clinical Professor of Marketing, Jorge Fontanez, of the Bard MBA in Sustainability Program in conversation with Jennifer Brown, an award-winning diversity and inclusion consultant and author. Her bestselling book, Inclusion: Diversity, The New Workplace and The Will to Change creates the case for leaders to embrace change.
