Maine Law’s Governance and Ethics Symposium Series explores the Mega-Trend of Organizational Sustainability and Social Responsibility
In April 2011, the Law School presented its third annual Governance and Ethics Symposium: Doing Well by Doing Good – The ‘Mega-Trend’ of Organizational Sustainability and Social Responsibility. This timely program marked a continuation of the Symposium’s 2009 and 2010 highly successful exploration of cutting-edge governance and ethics issues. Participants included leaders in business and nonprofit corporations with experience in sustainability, social responsibility, and stakeholder issues on regional, national and global fronts.
The Series is co-chaired by Daniel Boxer, former Chief Administrative Officer of Fairchild Semiconductor and Maine Law Adjunct Professor of Governance, and by Maine Law Dean Peter Pitegoff. This year’s Symposium panelists were: Charlie Broll, Vice President & General Counsel of Nestlé Waters of North America Inc. (Poland Spring); Paul Delva, Sr. Vice President & General Counsel of Fairchild Semiconductor; Ellen Golden, Managing Director of CEI Investment Notes, Inc. (affiliate of Coastal Enterprises, Inc.); Eileen Skinner, President & CEO of Mercy Health System of Maine (member of Catholic Health East); and Lisa K. Toner, Vice President of Legal Affairs at Delhaize America (affiliate of Hannaford). Daniel Boxer and Tom Dunne, retired partner at Accenture, moderated the discussion, following an introduction by Dean Peter Pitegoff.
