Leading for Shared Success
Chris Lloyd ’83 (Verizon Communications – Executive Director – Public Policy & Corporate Responsibility)
The role of business in society is changing. Corporations are not focused on just making money. The best corporate citizens view societal challenges as opportunities for business innovation and seek to create value for shareholders and for society.
Chris Lloyd ’83 will share insights regarding how Verizon is connecting its growth strategy to addressing some of society’s critical issues. You may not think of Verizon as a health care or energy company, but Chris will explain Verizon’s “Shared Success” strategy and how the company is using its broadband and wireless technology to enable solutions that improve the quality of health care and enable communities to improve their energy efficiency.
The fellowship will be open to Sophomore Febs, Sophomores, and Junior Febs wanting to engage more intensely with the field of social entrepreneurship. The fellows will become a cohort during their sophomore year and learn collaboratively from each other, be enrolled in a winter term class on social entrepreneurship, integrate theory and practice, and will receive $10,000 to engage in two summers of relevant experiences. Applications can be found at go/mcsefellows. For more information, please see the attached information or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
