The next UIC Wiewel Lecture on Economic Development will be given by local business and political leader, William "Bill" Daley. He will discuss the role of corporations in society in “Corporations & Humanity: Why They Belong Together.”
According to UIC Today (10/21/19), "Daley’s lecture will discuss how corporations have moved away from the role that 'shareholder wealth maximization' served as the sole purpose of a corporation. As a former commerce secretary, chief of staff for two presidents and as current vice chairman with oversight of government affairs, philanthropy and social responsibility for BNY Mellon, Daley is in a unique position to answer questions of how public and private investment can advance economic growth and also promote humanity.
'I am very pleased to be donating my papers to the University of Illinois at Chicago, which plays such a vital role in preserving Chicago’s history and advancing dialogue on the important roles that cities like Chicago will play in America’s future. I’m equally excited to be participating as a lecturer in the series and look forward to engaging with the students,' Daley said."
Please join us on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 4pm. The lecture begins at 4:15pm, with a reception to follow. The event will take place in the Academic and Residential Complex (940 W. Harrison St., Room 137).
The event is free and open to the public with RSVP. Please RSVP here or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
