|12:45 PM - 2:00 PM ||Business in a Climate-Compatible World
Join Us for the Second Seminar in the Spring 2016 Baruch Climate Change Series
This Free program in room 14-280 is Open To The Public, and is sponsored by the Provost's Faculty Research Seminar
Edward Cameron, PhD, Managing Director, Business for Social Responsibility
Cameron is a specialist in climate change and human rights with 20 years
of professional experience working with national governments,
international development agencies, global think tanks and with some of
the world’s most recognized companies. Edward is Managing Director at
BSR, a global non-profit that works with 270 multinational corporations
to achieve a just and sustainable world. He leads BSR’s climate practice
with the twin goals of driving aggressive greenhouse gas emissions
reductions commensurate with holding global mean temperature rises to
less than 2C above pre-industrial levels; and enhancing the adaptive
capacity of business and society in the face of inevitable climate
He also serves as Policy Director for the We Mean Business Coalition, an
unprecedented alliance of seven business-facing networks driving
private sector engagement with global climate change policy. Edward has
previously served with the World Resources Institute and the World Bank
during six years in Washington, DC; has been a Senior Advisor in the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Maldives; and spent nine years
working in Brussels with the European Union. He holds a PhD in Social
Science, Economics and Business and has earned degrees in Ireland,
Belgium and Finland.
poses significant and accelerating material risks for business and
society. Growing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere
lead to global mean temperature rises and associated growth in a range
of hazards including extreme weather events, changes in water patterns,
sea-level rises, and acidification of the oceans. This in turn
exacerbates risks to business and society by threatening natural
resources, undermining ecosystem services, destroying livelihoods and
homes, and damaging vital infrastructure. On the other hand recent
global policy responses to climate change, notably the signing of the
landmark Paris Agreement in December, are creating new market
opportunities worth trillions of dollars for businesses willing to adopt
climate compatible products, services, and operations.
This event will be held in room 14-280. Lunch will be served at 12:15 p.m.
This talk will look at both the risks of climate change and how our
collective response to this risk can catalyze a thriving clean economy.
Edward Cameron will speak about the growing volume of action and
ambition in the private sector to understand risk and build climate
resilience and will explore how the Paris Agreement dramatically changes
the landscape for businesses operating in an increasingly globalized

The Weissman School of Arts and Sciences Collaborative Faculty Grant in Sociology & Anthropology, and Black & Latino Studies invites you to a talk with Dr. Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, a Professor of Sociology at Duke University.
Professor Bonilla-Silva gained visibility in the social sciences with his 1997 American Sociological Review article, “Rethinking Racism: Toward a Structural Interpretation,” where he challenged social analysts to analyze racial matters from a structural perspective rather than from the sterile prejudice perspective.
His most recent television appearance was on the PBS election special, Race 2012. He has written several books, including White Supremacy and Racism in the Post-Civil Rights Era (co-winner of the 2002 Oliver Cox Award given by the American Sociological Association) and Racism Without Racists: Color-Blind Racism and the Persistence of Racial Inequality in the United States (2004 Choice Award).
Bonilla-Silva received the 2004 Lewis Coser Award for Theoretical-Agenda Setting and the 2011 Cox-Johnson-Frazier Award given by the American Sociological Association.

|6:30 PM - 8:30 PM ||THE WATCHDOG THAT DIDN'T BARK: The Financial Crisis and the Disappearance of Investigative Reporting
Dean Starkman will discuss his new book, "The Watchdog That Didn't Bark: The Financial Crisis and the Disappearance of Investigative Reporting" (January, 2014). He'll answer: Why did mainstream journalists miss the looming financial crisis, while some outside the mainstream got it? What does the business press's failure to alert the public say about its financial acumen and investigative abilities? Hear his analysis of the problem and his recommendations of how financial journalism can regain its status as the public watchdog.
FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC -- a good will offering at the door is appreciated.

|6:45 PM - 8:00 PM ||Ban Bossy
The Ban Bossy campaign, a national campaign that works to bring awareness and diminish the social double standards for the sexes. Speaking about the different stereotypes young kids face while growing up. “When a little boy asserts himself, he’s called a ‘leader.’ Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded ‘bossy.’ Words like ‘bossy’ send a message: don’t raise your hand or speak up. The Ban Bossy campaign attempts to address the root of the problem: the assignment of conflicting labels to boys and girls at the earliest stages of education. It's a lot more than just banning the word but to make sure that there's equality for everyone.
