There is an invisible army of people deep inside the world’s biggest companies, pushing for more responsible and sustainable practices.
Obviously, they don’t always succeed. Christine Bader was one of those people. She loved her employer, BP, and her work managing the social impacts of major projects—until a string of accidents occurred, culminating in the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Bader’s story is unique in its details, but not in its themes of idealism, practicalities and the push for change.
"The Evolution of a Corporate Idealist is a quick read, effortlessly gulped during a long airplane flight. The writing is clear and concise, and if the book doesn’t leave one convinced that every multinational has suddenly developed a guiding conscience, it does offer some encouragement that many are on the way." —The New York Times
There will be a book signing following this event.
Christine Bader is a human rights advisor to BSR and a visiting scholar at Columbia University. She serves on the boards of the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre and The OpEd Project.
