The Intellectual Shaman series as hosted by IHMA as a Faculty Development format. It is co-sponsored by the Galligan Chair of Strategy at Boston College.
Topic for this Conversation: Making the World Better though Our Teaching and Research
Please join Stuart Hart ( Steven Grossman Endowed Chair in Sustainable Business at the University of Vermont’s Grossman School of Business and Co-Founder of the School’s Sustainable Innovation MBA Program), for a conversation about how to be a successful—and truly impactful—scholar in today’s numbers-driven context. Prof. Hart is a leading authority in the field of sustainable business, author of award winning articles and best selling books (incl. Capitalism at the Crossroads). His work is focused on how business can become a force for good, dispelling the myth of tradeoffs and developing disruptive mindsets as well as native capabilities.
The conversation, moderated by Sandra Waddock (Galligan Chair of Strategy and Carroll School Scholar of Corporate Responsibility, Boston College Carroll School of Management), and author of Intellectual Shamans (Cambridge, 2014), will explore how Prof. Hart sees his work helping the world. We will discuss how he makes sense of today’s scholarly world, his own work, and emphasize the three key tasks of the intellectual shaman, healing, connecting, and sensemaking in the service of a better world.
