CSRHub Co-founder Cynthia Figge will join top CEOs, entrepreneurs, industry experts, and policymakers at this Spring's Wall Street Journal's Eco:nomics Conference. Held in Santa Barbara, the conference focuses on the opportunities and risks of environmental capital that are quickly emerging and changing across various sectors. WSJ's Eco:nomics unique atmosphere includes working groups, rather than speeches, rigorous analysis, and discussion and debate in the pursuit of real solutions.
Highlights from the upcoming sessions will include interviews with Bill Gates, philanthropist and chairman of Microsoft; Governor Jerry Brown of California; visionaries Dean Kamen, Elon Musk, and Craig Venter; Robert McDonald, chairman and CEO of The Procter & Gamble Company; T. Boone Pickens and former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell; venture capitalist Vinod Khosla; and Waste Management CEO David Steiner. The program will cover issues that directly impact the business world: new solutions and innovations, the aftermath of the disasters in the Gulf and in Japan, the uncertainty of subsidies, funding and regulation coming out of Washington, and other vital topics.
Cynthia Figge will represent CSRHub at the three-day conference from March 21 to 23. For updates from Cynthia, follow CSRHub on Twitter at @CSRHUB.
