Executive In Residence Series

October 25, 2018

We connect students with sustainability executives from leading companies to learn firsthand about confronting human rights challenges at the highest level. 

Interested in exploring a career in “doing well and doing good?” Join the NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights and the Social Enterprise Association as it hosts a new program to bring sustainability and corporate social responsibility executives from major brands to campus. This will be a rare opportunity to learn about strengthening human rights and sustainability protections from veteran practitioners.
Each executive will visit the NYU Stern campus for a day. Executives will host an open group presentation and meet one-on-one with selected students to discuss specific corporate approaches to human rights and environmental challenges, as well as pathways into career opportunities in the field. In the past, we have had the pleasure of hosting Nike, Kate Spade, Newmont Mining, Warby Parker, Unilever, Apple, Patagonia, Eileen Fisher, Cathay Pacific, and Nestle.
