Research & Proposal For Business Ethics Courses
My passion for sustainability motivated me to author a 68 page report to propose integrating business ethics and sustainability courses within my business school department. 113 business students that I interviewed also believed the school should prepare students to practice commerce in an ethical and sustainable manner. The report caught the attention of William Hernandez, the Executive Director of the Center, which led to my employment.
I planned an event in which 3 panelists spoke towards what sustainability means in a business context and discuss the importance for future business leaders to be aware the impact enterprises have on the environment and people. The event garnered 178 attendees.
Panelists included: Ernie Roberts, Sustainability Manager at Belkin International; Dr. Nadereh Afsharmanesh, Vice President of Sustainability of Friendly Products (ECOS); Dr. Oladele Ogunseitan, the Department Chair of Population Health & Disease Prevention at UCI.
Proposal to Banco Santander
I was tasked to write a proposal for the creation of a new Santander Institute for Global Sustainable Development co-located at the University of California, Irvine and the Universidad de Cantabria. The goal of this program was to rebuild the cultural and commercial bridge between Spain and California.
Presentation To CA Lieutenant Governor
The Directors and I flew to Sacramento to propose a MBA residential program between University of California Business Schools with South American Universities. I was tasked to create a presentation that would clearly and visually communicate our plan to the Lieutenant Governor, Eleni Kounalakis.
