Patagonia and Other Sustainability Experts Reveal Challenges of Balancing People, Planet & Profit

While Donald Trump is busy telling California farmers that they are not, in fact, experiencing a drought of any kind, some top sustainability leaders are offering considerably more useful insight to businesses: how to thrive amid social and ecological challenges.

Top experts from environmental responsibility archetype Patagonia, the Worker Rights Consortium, and Fielding’s new PhD concentration in Leadership for Social and Ecological Sustainability will present a free webinar on June 9 at 10am PT / 1pm ET.

Doing Good While Doing Well: Challenges Businesses Face in Achieving Sustainable Social and Ecological Practices” will go beyond the surface understandings and technical skills that constitute the core of most business school and environmentally focused university offerings in this area.

Examining the intersection between social and environmental sustainability, corporate social responsibility, and social justice, the 90-minute webinar will take a critical look at these issues: What’s been tried, what worked, what failed and what’s necessary for success?

Presenters include Patagonia’s Vincent Stanley, director of Patagonia philosophy and co-author with Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard of “The Responsible Company”; Scott Nova, executive director of the Workers Rights Consortium; Richard Appelbaum, Fielding faculty and author of the new book Achieving Workers’ Rights in the Global Economy; Paul Stillman, director of the Six Seconds emotional intelligence network; and Steve Schein, corporate strategist and author of A New Psychology for Sustainability Leadership.

Register for the free webinar now—then come back on June 9 to learn!
