Is American capitalism broken? Stephen Young, global executive director of Caux Round Table, will discuss the inequality of income and wealth in the United States from historical, economic, and moral perspectives at Loyola Marymount University on Tuesday Oct. 20 at 2:40 p.m. in the William H. Hannon Library.
Young is one of several keynote speakers participating in LMU’s three-day forum “People, Planet, Profit – Business Today, Tomorrow – What Next?” from Oct. 20 – 22. The participants will look at topics such as sustainability and business, employee-owned companies and “just” employment.
Kathy Mazzarella, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Graybar, an employee-owned Fortune 500 corporation, will discuss how employee ownership influences a company’s strategy, culture, decision-making, core values and commitment to sustainability. Mazzarella is one of only 26 women heading a Fortune 500 company.
Her presentation, “Profit, Purpose and People: A Path to Sustainable Success,” will provide insight on how companies owned by employees can drive innovation and competitiveness, while remaining true to their values and preserving their cultural strengths.
The three-day symposium is sponsored by the CSJ Center for Reconciliation and Justice, the Bellarmine Forum, the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts, the Academy of Catholic Thought and Imagination, the School of Film and Television and the Center for Service and Action.
