Draper Student leads Conflict Free Campus Initiative at NYU; upcoming event!

Draperite Stephanie Zanowic is working on a project she’d like to share with the Draper community. She is starting a chapter of the Conflict-Free Campus Initiative at NYU (http://www.raisehopeforcongo.org/content/conflict-free-campus-initiative), which encourages universities to pass resolutions condemning materials that fund the war in Congo. They’re having a big event next Friday with the CEO of Intel Corporation, more info below! They are also looking for people who want to get more involved with CFCI and help push NYU toward passing a resolution. Anyone interested should contact Stephanie at: smz275@nyu.edu.

The event:

Friday, September 19, 2014
12:15 PM – 1:15pm

In Pursuit of Conflict Free:
A Conversation on Corporate Responsibility between
Brian Krzanich, 
CEO of Intel Corporation  
 Michael Posner, Co-Director of the Center for Business and Human Rights

The NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights is delighted to invite you to join Brian Krzanich, CEO of Intel Corporation and Michael Posner, Co-Director of the Center for Business and Human Rights for a discussion on the role of corporate responsibility and human rights.

Five years ago, Intel undertook an effort to ensure its products are free of conflict minerals which are extracted and sold to finance armed terror groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  Krzanich and Posner will discuss how Intel considered this human rights issue and how the company approaches other challenges in its global supply chain and business operations.

A complimentary lunch will be served.

Kimmel Center for University Life
 Room 914
60 Washington Square South
New York City, NY 10010


This conversation is co-hosted by Conflict-Free Campus Initiative at NYU.
