Mary Evelyn Tucker will speak about the multi-media project “Journey of the Universe,” which she worked on together with her colleague, evolutionary philosopher Brian Swimme.

“The New Climate Reality”
Diane M. PhilLips, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Marketing, St. Joseph’s University

Diane Phillips will speak about how the issue of environmental sustainability requires a paradigm shift in the way we all think about our own role within the broader scope of the global community. She will suggest that business leaders no longer need to make the decision to either do what’s right by the economy or do what’s right by the bottom line. In fact, business leaders can do both.
