The professorship will focus on developing the next generation of business leaders and contributing to an inclusive, diverse, and sustainable society. The position is supported by a $2.5M gift from the Quinn Family Future Foundation. “Climate change and social issues are not only significant threats to Canadian business, they can also be tremendous opportunities for organizations and entrepreneurs,” says Francisca Quinn. “We want to equip every student at Smith to expertly navigate ESG – whether in business strategy, accounting, finance, technology, or organizational systems.”
