Lecture: The Evolution of a Corporate Idealist: When Girl Meets Oil
January 29, 2015
- An Evening with Christine Bader Amherst College'93. Both pragmatic and optimistic, Bader counts herself among the many "Corporate Idealists" who represent a "global army of people fighting for better social and environmental practices inside multinational companies – with mixed success." Her book focuses on the efforts of these individuals who join corporations with the goal of helping it to act more responsibly, and the practical difficulties they encounter. As David Vogel succinctly concludes in his review for the Stanford Social Innovation Review, "Many firms have both CSR achievements and limitations. The challenge for corporate idealists is to continue pushing for greater achievement without letting the limitations discourage them. This engaging book offers useful if sobering lessons on how to meet that challenge." Books will be available for purchase at the event, Q&A to follow.
