An Insider’s Take: The Evolution of a Corporate Idealist
Host: Christine Bader
There is an invisible army of people deep inside the world’s largest companies, pushing them towards safer and more responsible business practices. They don’t always succeed.
Christine Bader, featured TED talk speaker, was one of those people, having spent 9 years in love with her employer, BP; until a string of accidents, culminating in the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster.
Christine’s story of working in big business is unique in its details, but not in its themes. In this webinar, she’ll share her experiences, and weave in stories and reflections from dozens of peers and experts.
Join us for an inspirational and practical talk about corporate responsibility and sustainability from an insider’s perspective.
