“I left Wall Street in 2004 when I decided I had a black soul,” says Stephanie Berger (MBA'06), a McGill Desautels Faculty of Management MBA alumna who is now the senior manager for corporate responsibility and environment at Bell Canada. “I didn’t know much about sustainability back then, but I knew Wall Street wasn’t doing it right.”

ACS-GCI Director on the MDIIM Sustainable Innovation Workshop

The past six weeks have been eventful. In early September there was the ACS National Meeting in Indianapolis and that was an enjoyable week.  Indianapolis turned out to be a great venue with lots of good programming and some very memorable events. I especially enjoyed the Kavli Foundation Emerging Leader in Chemistry Lecture by Dr. Marin Burke entitled “Making molecular prosthetics with a small molecule synthesizer,” and the address by Alan Alda.

Postgraduate training in law can provide students with plenty of opportunities: a legal career is just one of them. Existing lawyers might seek to augment their skills with a Masters qualification. Those on other career paths might add another dimension to their knowledge with a little legal learning. Some might simply enjoy the academic rigour of legal study.

Chemistry and Business that are Benign by Design: Leveraging the Canadian Chemistry Industry’s Leadership in Sustainability

Tue, 2013-02-19 09:36

Fifty years ago, Rachel Carson published her bestseller, Silent Spring, and the chemical industry was changed forever. An indictment of inattention to the flow and negative consequences of synthetic chemicals in the environment, Carson’s book catalyzed the environmental movement in North America. It also undermined the public’s confidence in simple assertions of “better living through chemistry” which, while not untrue, did not represent a full accounting of the risks and benefits of chemical technologies. The industry has been challenged to regain the public’s confidence ever since.
