Join us for a workshop and discussion with Kimberly Kosmenko.

The rules of business are constantly changing, with recent years bringing corporate responsibility front and center. Businesses that leverage a true commitment to social and environmental sustainability are now gaining the upper hand in many industries. Leaders earn competitive advantage with customers and hiring the best talent, while laggards risk losing ground. Learn about the drivers of this growing trend and how your business or start-up can create market opportunity by acting as a good corporate citizen.

Kosmenko's presentation is free and open to the public. Food will be provided. Attendees are asked to register in advance on Eventbrite.

She has advised businesses ranging from Fortune 500 to NGOs to social enterprise start-ups, including Humana, Allstate, State Street, Facebook, Walmart suppliers and the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
