NEW YORK, NY-February 24, 2015 -The Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity at Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business invites you to its upcoming conference, Utopian Dreams: Early Experiments in Corporate Social Responsibility on Tuesday, March 10.

Marc Hodak, founder of Hodak Value Advisors and professor at NYU Stern, will examine instances in early American business where companies attempted to improve the lives of their workers by re-defining the company/employee relationship. He will explain how these experiments paved the road for the modern Corporate Social Responsibility movement and how “lessons learned” can inform today’s CSR efforts.

He has been an adjunct professor of corporate governance at NYU’s Stern School of Business since 2004 and is recognized by the largest institutional investors in the world as a thought leader on how to evaluate compensation governance.
