WHO WE ARE
We're starting a movement we hope other business schools will adopt.
Founded in 2013, the NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights is the first center dedicated to human rights at a business school. Led by Founder and Director Michael Posner - who served in the Obama Administration as Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor - the Center advances a pro-business, high standards model. Our staff members have backgrounds in public policy, law, scholarship, and journalism. We're united in our belief that companies should be profitable and competitive while benefiting the people who make their success possible. From the heart of the world's financial hub in New York City, we are helping to write a new playbook for business and human rights, renegotiating the responsibilities corporations have to the people and communities they touch.
