Cornell SC Johnson College of Business Digital Classroom Series: Leading startups for a better world

Wednesday, June 9, 12p.m. - 1p.m. EDT | Virtual Program

Sponsored by: Cornell SC Johnson College of Business

Audience:All Alumni School:Johnson


Join us for Cornell SC Johnson College of Business Digital Classroom Series: Leading startups for a better world.

To entrepreneurs, "disruption" is just another word for "opportunity." Yet it takes a special kind of perspective - and a special kind of leader - to move from chaos to innovation. Our world today is rife with disruption: from the pandemic, to breakneck technological change, to mass global migration. It's perfect timing for visionary entrepreneurs eager to make an impact.

More and more we're seeing Cornell University alumni leading the charge with startups focused on improving lives and building a better world. In this session, Andrew Karolyi, Dean of Cornell's SC Johnson College of Business, invites you to sit down with a panel of rising entrepreneurial stars to discover their approach to promoting positive change with creative solutions to everyday problems.

This session is definitely not "business as usual": Our panelists will discuss the traits that have best served them on their journey, how to embrace challenges - and even major "failures" - as fodder for innovation, and how COVID-19 made pivoting and problem solving the new norm.

Moderator:

Dean Andrew Karolyi, Cornell SC Johnson College of Business


Speakers:

  • Natalie Grillon MBA '12, Executive Director, Open Apparel Registry
  • Jamey Edwards ILR '96, MBA '03, Co-Founder & CEO, Cloudbreak Health
  • Moussa Paye Dyson '19, Co-Founder & CEO, UniPantry
  • Samay Bansal SHA '21, Founder & Managing Director, Million Meals Mission

A Brighter Future: Climate Tech Innovation Fueled by Diverse Founders

Wednesday, June 9, 1p.m. - 2p.m. EDT | Virtual Program

Sponsored by: W.E. Cornell (Women Entrepreneurs at Cornell) and BET (Black Entrepreneurs in Training)

Audience:All Alumni Topic:Diversity Equity and Inclusion Topic:Sustainability


Join this webinar to hear from our panel of Cornell faculty and alumni about fast-moving opportunities in cleantech. They will dive deep into several specific initiatives focused on developing and supporting diverse founders in the industry. In 2020, COVID-19 cast a dark pall over nearly every sector of the global economy. The one exception? Cleantech. Year over year, all top cleantech index funds saw 100% returns or more. If anything, the pandemic catalyzed a greater sense of urgency to address the impacts of climate change on humans and the planet. This is especially true in traditionally marginalized communities, where climate impacts are exacerbating longstanding economic and health disparities. Now, as the world’s largest economies renew legislative focus on reducing greenhouse gases and funding cleantech innovation, potential startup founders have fresh opportunities. For diverse founders — including women and BIPOC — the timing is particularly ripe. With the expansion of designated venture funds, accelerators, and mentorship programs, diverse founders have a firmer foundation for launching and growing successful cleantech startups. Most importantly, diverse founders are ready to incorporate underserved communities into their innovation, ensuring that all people benefit from cleantech solutions.

SHA Thought Leader Program: The First 100 Days as Marriott’s CEO

Wednesday, June 9, 4p.m. - 5p.m. EDT | Virtual Program

Sponsored by: Alumni Affairs & Development, Cornell SC Johnson College of Business

Audience:All Alumni School:Johnson


It’s difficult enough to lead a hospitality company with more than 7,600 properties; 30 brands; and the travel industry’s largest customer loyalty program, made up of 147 million members. Now imagine taking over during a global pandemic that has rocked the hospitality and travel industries. That’s exactly what Anthony Capuano ’87 did as the newly appointed CEO of Marriott International, Inc. Join us for a fireside chat between Cornell School of Hotel Administration Dean Kate Walsh and Mr. Capuano, who will reflect on his first 100 days as CEO, the unique challenges in hospitality during COVID-19, and the opportunities that lie ahead.

Sharice's Big Voice

Wednesday, June 9, 6p.m. - 6:30p.m. EDT | Virtual Program

School:Law


Co-sponsored by Cornell Law School Mary Kennedy Brown Society & Cornell Law School Native American Lawyers Alumni Network

Sharice Davids, JD ’10 was elected in 2018 to the U.S. House of Representatives as the Representative for Kansas’s 3rd Congressional district. She is one of the first two Native American women elected to Congress; the first openly LGBT Native American Elected to Congress; the first openly LGBT person elected to Congress from Kansas; and now she is the author of a children’s book Sharice’s Big Voice! This picture book autobiography tells the triumphant story of Sharice Davids.

When Sharice Davids was young, she never thought she’d be in Congress. And she never thought she’d be one of the first Native American women in Congress. During her campaign, she heard from a lot of doubters. They said she couldn’t win because of how she looked, who she loved, and where she came from. But here’s the thing: Everyone’s path looks different and everyone’s path has obstacles. And this is the remarkable story of Sharice Davids’ path to Congress.

Beautifully illustrated by Joshua Mangeshig Pawis-Steckley, an Ojibwe Woodland artist, this powerful autobiographical picture book teaches readers to use their big voice and that everyone deserves to be seen—and heard!

Join us for a book talk and reading - an up-close preview of the book presented by Representative Sharice Davids herself.

SHA Thought Leader Program: Sustainability in the Hospitality Industry

Thursday, June 10, 12p.m. - 1p.m. EDT | Virtual Program

Sponsored by: Alumni Affairs & Development, Cornell SC Johnson College of Business

Audience:All Alumni


Sustainability has long been a key topic in the hospitality industry, with issues like elimination of food waste and single-use plastics, energy and water management, responsible tourism, and conservation important causes to be championed. Yet less-tangible issues like indirect emissions exist further down the value chain and can make a company’s overall impact on the environment and society much harder to quantify. Without knowing a company’s true impact, it’s a challenge to measure progress, but technology for managing impact has the potential to make a company’s sustainability measures as accessible and transparent as its financial records. Join us for a virtual panel as we bring together academic and industry leaders from Cornell University, Deloitte, JLL, and Marriott to discuss the challenges and opportunities around sustainability in the hospitality industry.

The Ethics of Using AI Tools in Law Practice - CLE Program

Thursday, June 10, 12p.m. - 1p.m. EDT | Virtual Program

School:Law


Lawyers have long used technology in the practice of law. As legal tech grows increasingly sophisticated, it often employs artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms. The use of AI-enabled tech in law practice raises a number of ethical issues, some of which are natural extensions of existing doctrines, and some of which are completely novel. Dr. Christian Mammen, JD ’93, a partner at Womble Bond Dickinson, will provide a lively and engaging discussion of key issues. 

Moderator:  Geoff Young, JD ’06, Partner, Reed Smith

Participants are eligible to receive 1 hour of CLE credit for the state of New York and California in the area of Ethics. California MCLE credit is being provided by Womble Bond Dickinson. Attorneys who practice outside of New York may be eligible for reciprocal CLE credit. CLE credit is free of charge and is appropriate for both transitional and non-transitional attorneys.

Sponsored by: College of Human Ecology & eCornell

What comes to mind when you think about play? Maybe kids digging in a sandbox, or a pickup basketball game after school. But what about an office filled with adults who are allowed room for imagination so they can joyfully engage in their work? That’s also play, and it’s not just for kids. Play helps adults learn, express creativity, improve productivity, and relax from the stresses of everyday life. During this session, Cornell alumni Mike and Karen Psiaki will share stories and insights from their time working at The LEGOⓇ Group — the largest toy company in the world — as well as ideas for incorporating play into your workplace. Get ready to think about play in a new way and follow along as the Psiakis demonstrate a few fun LEGO activities. Don’t worry; we guarantee there is 0% chance you’ll step on a LEGO brick.

What’s Going On! Rock, Soul, and Protest in the 1960s

Thursday, June 10, 3p.m. - 4p.m. EDT | Virtual Program

Sponsored by: Co-sponsored by: Classes of 1970 and 1971 and College of Arts & Sciences

Audience:All Alumni Audience:Classes Schools and Groups Audience:College-Unit Class:1970 Class:1971 Event Type:Lecture School:Arts & Sciences


The 1960s was a momentous decade when many college-age youth became politically active in “protest culture” in response to on-going struggles by African Americans for Civil Rights, escalation of the Vietnam War, and a growing distrust in social institutions such as marriage. Within rock ‘n’ roll and related genres of popular music in the 1960s, artists produced a wealth of implicit and explicit commentaries on key social and political issues of their day. This lecture, featuring associate professor, Steven Pond, explores examples of rock and R&B-derived pop in that era as forms of social protest confronting racism, sexism, war, income inequality, and environmental disaster. Program moderated by Rick Zelman '71.

The view from Myron Taylor Hall remains clear and constant to its mission “Our aim is to keep its instruction strong, its standard high, and so to produce … a fair number of well-trained, large-minded, morally based lawyers in the best sense,” articulated by Cornell President Andrew Dickson White in 1887. The school has proven success in being flexible - adapting to new leadership and the evolving needs of its faculty, students, and the practice of law. Join us for a look at its leadership and priorities as the school advances into a new era of legal education.

Celebrating 50 Years of Social Justice Work at Cornell

Sponsored by: Center for Transformative Action

Audience:All Alumni Event Type:Panel Discussion


This panel discussion celebrates the Center for Transformative Action’s (CTA) 50th anniversary. CTA (originally the Center for Religion, Ethics and Social Policy) is a Cornell affiliate, established in 1971 in response to a tumultuous time, not unlike our own. We continue to provide a space to learn, reflect and act with the goal of creating communities that are socially just, ecologically sound and work for everyone. You will learn about the infrastructure and legal umbrella CTA offers nonprofit social entrepreneurs to incubate and grow their projects, how we pair education with action for personal and social transformation, and the far-reaching impact of our work. CTA currently supports over 30 projects through its fiscal sponsorship services and mentorship, most located in Tompkins County and New York City. The issue areas addressed by our projects are wide-ranging but include immigration, food justice, human rights, climate resiliency, and racial equity. Those tied directly to Cornell include Anabel’s Grocery, a student-run grocery store addressing food insecurity on campus by offering fresh, affordable food. Anabel’s is the living laboratory for a social entrepreneurship course in the Dyson School taught by CTA executive director, Anke Wessels. The Susan Christopherson Center for Community Planning helps communities establish successful planning projects at the intersection of climate resiliency, equity and the built environment and works closely with faculty and students in the Department of City and Regional Planning. Global Development faculty member, Rachel Bezner-Kerr, leads Friends of Soils, Food, and Healthy Communities, a project that works with farmers in Malawi employing agro-ecological practices to enhance food security and community resilience. Two of our longest running projects, the Durland Alternatives Library and the Committee on US-Latin American Relations, are housed in Anabel Taylor Hall, where CTA also has its main offices. The panel is moderated by Anke Wessels, CTA’s executive director for 23 years, and will feature 4-5 CTA projects, some with a long history and others that are still in the start-up phase.

Finger Lakes and Down Under Side-by-Side: Virtual Wine Tasting Event

Sunday, June 13, 4p.m. - 5p.m. EDT | Virtual Program

Sponsored by: Experience! The Finger Lakes and Silver Thread Vineyard

Audience:All Alumni Audience:Classes Schools and Groups Class:All Classes Event Type:Educational Event Type:Interactive


Riesling and Pinot Noir, while indigenous to Europe, have found much happiness in the New World of wine. Both of these grapes like cooler weather, and thrive in regions with lots of glacial soils, making the Finger Lakes, New Zealand, and some special regions of Australia ideal for growing these grapes. Join Experience! The Finger Lakes owner and certified sommelier, Dr. Laura Winter Falk (CU '87, '95, '97) and Silver Thread Vineyard Owner, and DipWSET wine instructor, Shannon Brock (CU '99) as they compare Finger Lakes Riesling and Pinot Noir from Silver Thread Vineyards with their counterparts from Australia and New Zealand. All these wines are driven by their exceptional fruit quality and minerality. They are also all produced using sustainable methods on estate vineyards, and are pure examples of what is being produced in their regions. Laura and Shannon will also be side-by-side as they guide you through these four wines, their stories, their similarities and their differences. The virtual experience will begin at 4pm, and households will receive one bottle of each wine (total of 4 wines) in their kit that will be delivered directly to their homes. The event is expected to last around one hour. Price: $115 plus shipping costs. Preregistration is required to participate. Must register by June 1 in order to ensure timely delivery of your wines
