Business Stepping Up: The Lovins Series
<<<<< TICKETS HERE >>>>>
 
As President Trump pursues a regressive, isolationist agenda, business is stepping up to address climate change, promote equality and protect human rights, and create economic opportunity. Join sustainability pioneer Hunter Lovins for a conversation series with industry experts to explore this shift in progressive business leadership.

November's Business Stepping Up conversation will feature Laura Gittman discussing how businesses are reacting to the new approach in Washington, in some cases stepping up sustainability efforts and in other cases, stepping back. Laura is Vice President at BSR, a global nonprofit business network dedicated to sustainability. Laura spearheads the New York office, working with multinational companies across a range of industry sectors and sustainability issues. She also serves on BSR’s Executive Committee and oversees global membership strategy and services. She runs senior-level sustainability strategy workshops and multistakeholder forums, and has published reports on environmental, social, and governance integration in mainstream investing. From 2006 to 2010, Laura facilitated the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition, growing the initiative from 15 to more than 50 electronics companies. She also launched BSR’s global financial services and media practices. Laura previously worked for Deloitte Consulting, where she acquired extensive strategy experience advising multinational financial services companies. She also managed a community development project in Ecuador, developed the business strategy for a startup in the biotechnology sector in Chile.

Join Bard MBA in Sustainability as we host the Business Stepping Up Series monthly in downtown Manhattan featuring Hunter Lovins in discussion with Bard MBA faculty and alumni who are part of this business revolution.
