9:00 AM - 1:10 PM The 5th Annual Symposium on Sustainable Business - Profits and Politics
About the Program It has never been more important for a global corporation to follow sustainable business practices. Many corporate stakeholders, governments and NGO's are calling for nothing less. At the same time, it has never been harder for multinational corporations to be sustainable. The increasingly complex national and international political landscape, mounting evidence of climate change, human rights and social issues, and an uncertain economic environment all pose real challenges to would-be sustainable corporations. This year's Symposium will examine how multinational corporations are attempting to overcome these challenges. The Symposium will explore ESG, the acronym which describes the three areas of focus used - environment, social and governance - when measuring and reporting on business sustainability and corporate social responsibility. Agenda Environment - 9:05 to 10:15 AM The debate over human contributions to global warming has become increasingly political, confounding science and lobbying. This panel will investigate the influence of large and powerful corporations on the energy and economic policy making of sovereign nations. Gary Sheffer,Vice President, Communications & Public Affairs, GE Amy Davidsen, Executive Director, The Climate Group Social - 10:30 to 11:45 AM Major global corporations have been accused of falling short of their own labor and trade standards when operating far from corporate headquarters. How have they responded and do their current practices now reflect who they say they are as well as meet emerging global social standards for corporate responsibility and good behavior? Jorge Perez-Lopez, Executive Director, Fair Labor Association Nathan Fleisig, Social Responsibility & Compliance Manager, Adjmi Apparel Group Governance - 12:00 to 1:15 PM Transparency and stakeholder engagement are two sides to the coin of good corporate governance. This panel will discuss the challenges of both being transparent (how much? And to whom?) as well as stakeholder engagement (what do stakeholders have a right to ask of the corporation?). Peter Duda, Executive Vice President, Weber Shandwick Jeanette M Franzel, Board Member, PCAOB Olajobi Makinwa, Head of Transparency and Anti-Corruption Initiatives, UN Global Compact Office Wrap-Up - 1:15 to 1:20 PM Networking Lunch - 1:20 to 2:00 PM Agenda and Panelists subject to change.

8:00 PM - 8:30 PM Real Time Jazz Band

Real Time Jazz Band (Cancelled)

Fri, Feb 15, 2013 at 8pm

General Admission $25

 

 

Real Time is the celebrated new contemporary jazz quintet that performs easy-to-remember original melodies by musicians who perform on the contemporary scene, including drums, saxophone, piano (grand), electric guitar, and electric bass guitar.

 

"Real Time's funky and melodically tight arrangements and harmonies have a mass appeal without being overly commercialized."

---Entertainment Media News Services

 

"The music breathes. It comes alive with vibrant exotic energy. They have the easy knack of writing music with just the right amount of melody, rhythm, harmony and excitement."

--- Firewater Productions

 

"Dig your music man... It's impressive."

--- Wayne Cline, Jazz Times Magazine

 

"Led by drummer Bonifacio, Real Time falls squarely in the contemporary electric Jazz catagory pioneered by, among others, the GRP cast of characters."

---CrabNebula Magazine

 

Refusing to perform unnecessary technical flash or unclear direction, Real Time plays jazz for the 21st Century. Leader Mark Bonifacio and music director Cay Fatima have collaborated to write music that gives texture to some finely woven compositions. The music of Real Time is exciting, and relaxing. The group feels at home in many jazz styles and their live performances show their impulsive improvisational skills.

 

As a NYC metro based quintet that has been working steadily in the tri-state area, Real Time has a strong following since their relatively short debut – proof positive that this band has staying power and compositions that will stand the real test of time.

The industry has experienced 15% annual growth over the last ten years. There are 300 Islamic banks and investments firms operating in over 70 countries. Despite its importance, many American business professionals and students do not understand how Islamic finance functions and are ill prepared to conduct business in the Islamic World. Join the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity and the Baruch College Muslim Student Association as we explore how American businesses successfully navigate the world of Islamic finance and operate in predominately Muslim nations.

Our guest Omar Wohabe, President, Arab Bankers Association of North America will partake in an evening Q&A with RZCCI Director David Rosenberg.

The discussion will be followed by a networking reception. About the Speaker Omar Wohabe is a partner of Wohabe Law Offices LLP, in New York. The firm was established in 1971 to serve private-sector and public-sector clients from the Arab Gulf with respect to diverse domestic and international transactions and activities, and clients from other jurisdictions with respect to their business interests in the Gulf. Mr. Wohabe represents such clients principally in connection with investments in private equity, venture capital, real estate and other commercial transactions. Portions of these transactions are made in conformity with Islamic law. He also routinely advises clients on matters relating to fund formation and capital market transactions, and serves as outside general counsel to clients, generally in connection with investment transactions and commercial assignments, but also with respect to litigation, regulatory and compliance matters in the United States and Arab Gulf jurisdictions. Mr. Wohabe is the President and a member of the Board of Directors of the Arab Bankers Association of North America (“ABANA”).

He regularly organizes and presents at private and public conferences on the subject of Islamic investing and other topics of interest to Gulf investors.

James Baldwin–Down From The Mountaintop, written and performed by Tony Award nominee Calvin Levels, depicts the impassioned life of the American novelist, essayist, playwright and human rights activist James Baldwin, known for such novels as Go Tell It On The MountainGiovanni’s Room andAnother Country, and essays that include Notes of a Native Son and The Fire Next Time. Mr. Levels’ portrayal of one of America’s greatest thinkers has received only rave reviews and standing ovations from Baldwin scholars, educators, critics and students. Mr. Levels has performed the play at over 60 institutions, including Princeton University, Dartmouth College, Northwestern University, Tennessee State University, Skidmore College, The University of Pennsylvania, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Actors Studio Sunset Theatre, The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity.

 

Calvin Levels began his love affair with the theatre at the tender age of five at the renowned Karamu Theater located in Cleveland, Ohio. After receiving a theatre degree from a local college, Calvin Levels continued his theatrical studies with the great acting teacher, Lee Strasberg, for five years. During that time he began working professionally in theatre, film and television.

He is a lifetime member of the Actors Studio and the Ensemble Studio Theatre. While in New York, he was under the tutelage of Gerald Schoenfeld and Bernard Jacobs of the Shubert Organization for theatrical production. Mr. Levels has penned several plays and screenplays including his play Common Ground, mounted at Lincoln Center Theatre, and his solo play James Baldwin–Down From the Mountaintop, about the great writer and human rights activist, James Baldwin, that he has performed at over sixty venues across the country and for which he has received rave reviews. The James Baldwin Literary Society bestowed him with an honor for his contribution to the legacy of James Baldwin. Mr. Levels has been invited to George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch to complete post-production of a film version of James Baldwin–Down From the Mountaintop, which he produced and directed. Some of his film credits include: Ragtime, directed by Milos Forman; the CBS five-hour mini-series The Atlanta Child Murders, in which he portrayed the central character, Wayne Williams, and in which he co-starred with Morgan Freeman, Jason Robards, Martin Sheen, Ruby Dee and Rip Torn; Convicts, starring Robert Duval and James Earl Jones; Johnny Suede, co-starring Brad Pitt; and Adventures in Babysitting, starring Elizabeth Shue.
