Speaking For The Silent
As one of our time's most prominent conservationists heading one of our world's largest environmental organizations, Yolanda Kakabadse speaks for those without a voice. Now you can hear from this pioneer for sustainable development when Ms. Kakabadse, President of the World Wildlife Fund visits Webster as the inaugural Global Leader in Residence for the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology. "We at Webster University agree with this world leader when Ms. Kakabadse says that environment and biodiversity are no longer subjects for only conservationists and scientists," said Dr. Benjamin Ola. Akande, dean of the Walker School of Business and chief of Webster's Office of Corporate Partnership. "Her presence here at Webster will give not only our students but also the community the opportunity to learn this essential education." Ms. Kakabadse's residency includes several free and open-to-the-public events including a Presidential Reception on April 9th, a keynote address by Ms. Kakabadse on April 10th and an executive breakfast program on how to embed sustainability into the heart of business on April 11th.
