Necessary Conversations

This Necessary Conversation is sponsored by the Donahue Center for Business Ethics & Social Responsibility in the Manning School of Business at UMass-Lowell.

Necessary Conversations,” a web-enabled forum (we use the Zoom platform) with a global audience. Our goal for this event is to feature progressive and trans-formative approaches and new paradigms for protecting dignity and promoting well-being —human through planetary — in our organizing practices.

This is a video conference series to have necessary conversations on topics that matter.
