Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) July 9, 2009
Respected advocate of sustainable business Jeffrey Hollender joins host John Schmidt on VoiceAmerica's ZOOM'D Leadership on Monday, July 13 at 2 p.m. Eastern to share the journey of Seventh Generation--including its founding, milestones of growth and development, and continuing maturation--and describe the lessons of leadership that have accompanied this organization's significant contribution to the realm of sustainability.
Seventh Generation, by its name, reflects awareness and responsibility to future generations. The name is derived from the Great Law of the Iroquois that states, "In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations."
Hollender will bring to life the perspectives and themes that have distinguished Seventh Generation as an example for all--relevant to anyone interested in groundbreaking approaches to organization building for a world of constant renewal.
Hollender is a member and former Director of the Social Venture Network, co-founded Community Capital Bank, served as President of The Rainforest Foundation USA, and currently serves on the boards of Greenpeace USA, Healthy Child Healthy World, Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility, and Alloy Inc. He is coauthor of Naturally Clean: The Seventh Generation Guide to Safe & Healthy, Non-toxic Cleaning (with Geoff Davis) and What Matters Most: How a Small Group of Pioneers Is Teaching Social Responsibility to Big Business, and Why Big Business Is Listening (with Stephen Fenichell).
