Eller MBA chapter engages execs in conversation about corporate social responsibility

In February, the Eller MBA chapter of Net Impact brought in senior leadership from American Honda, APS, and Monsanto to engage with students in a healthy debate on corporate social responsibility.

Cheryl Morley of Monsanto, Edward Fox of APS, and David Raney of American Honda each presented on their companies’ approaches to the topic, and answered questions from the student audience.

“There is a pretty substantial debate on corporate social responsibility right now: what it means, whether it should be purely altruistic, and how to balance those concerns and be profitable,” says Morely (BSBA Accounting ’76).

The event was coordinated by first-year MBA Ben Lyon and second-year MBA Cyrus Khosh-Chashm, who lead the Eller chapter of Net Impact.
