Dean's Speaker Series: Hear it From the Top

Tue, Mar 25, 2014, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Location: Truland Auditorium, Marymount's Ballston Center; 1000 North Glebe Road, Arlington, VA.; Speaker at 6:30 p.m., reception at 7:30 p.m.

Whether you call it sustainability, corporate social responsibility, corporate citizenship, or philanthropy, it’s one of the hottest topics in business today. Business leaders (and those who want to move up the ladder) need to understand what companies are doing to balance the often-conflicting interests,  and short- and long-term perspectives, of employees, investors, customers, the community, and the planet.

The featured speaker is Loretta Abrams, senior vice president of corporate sustainability with HSBC. One of the largest banking and financial services organizations, HSBC has 6,600 offices in 80 countries and serves about 55 million customers. Learn how Ms. Abrams has structured her company’s sustainability program, and the trends that will affect this high-profile area in years to come.

This event is sponsored by the School of Business Administration and is open to the entire Marymount community.
