Virtual Seminar Series

Seminars as part of our virtual series will encompass a wide variety of corporate-sustainability topics. Each session will take place at 11:00-12:00 pm EST and will consist of two parts:

Part 1: Presentation — open to the entire ARCS community

Part 2: Networking opportunity and career advice with speaker — open to PhD students and junior faculty

The goals of this seminar series are, to give thought leaders in sustainability the opportunity to present their work and obtain valuable feedback, give an opportunity to junior scholars to network with the speaker and obtain career advice, and to be more inclusive and strengthen our global ARCS community throughout the year. In addition, we invite the future generation of thought leaders – namely the Ivey/ARCS Ph.D. Sustainability Academy Award Winners 2019 – to present their work.

Please click here to register for both the Fall and Spring series. Registering once will give you access to the entire series.
