ACCELERATING the TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE:

INDUSTRY-SPECIFIC BREAKOUT DISCUSSIONS

 

There's a climate crisis.

How can we contribute to DRAWDOWN

from within our respective CAREERS?

Because gradualism has failed when it comes to staving off global warming, we need to lean in to the climate crisis from every
industry angle, and accelerate the triple bottom line of ecological, social and economic sustainability.

Otherwise, according to tens of thousands of scientists, we seem to be guaranteeing ourselves an uninhabitable world.

Economic sustainability was originally meant to imply economic viability

as well as

a lack of economic harms caused by the conducting of one’s business, not just profitable quarterly earnings.

 

This industry-focused tUrn headliner

returns us to that original intention

of the phrase, triple bottom line, coined 25 years ago.

Emerging professionals need to know how to embrace the best strategies for creating sustainable enterprises

in their chosen professions starting on "DAY 1".

Mid-career professionals or those in leadership need to use their voice and their platforms to leverage a future for themselves and for all.

How does that look across various industries and careers?
 

Join Graeme Warren [SCU Information Systems and Analytics], Deirdre Frontczak [SCU Marketing & Management], ASG Vice-President Charlie Douille and a diverse roster of professors and professionals who will lead small group discussions specific to career/industry/sectors.

 7—8 PM

BEGINNING LEVEL MEXICAN FOLKLORICO CLASS

with RAMON PULIDO (SCU'12) and GLORIA SEVILLA (SCU'20)

Thursday and Friday of tUrn are dedicated to ACTION & RESTORATION!

This session should help us with both.

Drawing down global warming requires that everyone begin with simple steps, it requires a willingness to learn about other cultures and celebrate them, and it requires that we break up our normal routines...

dance can be a great image for us as we try to do all that.

Get moving after a long day in any small space you have available. You do not have to have your camera on. Master teacher of Folklorico Ramon Pulido and Gloria Sevilla, SCU Ballet Folklorico will demonstrate some lovely patterns and rhythms that will help you move into a beautiful mindset and maintain your health in this time of sedentary online spaces.

Shoes that make a little sound help you hear the rhythms. Dress shoes can work well. Character shoes if you've got them.

All of the steps can be learned in any kind of shoes or barefoot or armwork can be learned from a chair.
