The Pinchot Perspective
Fri., May 8, 5:30 - 7 PM
In 2002, Gifford and Libba Pinchot founded the Bainbridge Graduate Institute, the first business school to offer an MBA in Sustainable Business. The vision: to create a graduate school that fosters change in business, caring for the environment and people as well as for profit.
The Bainbridge Graduate Institute is now Pinchot University, and has evolved with the changes in climate, markets and industry, including the formation of the Center for Inclusive Entrepreneurship (CIE), which supports economic development for underserved minorities in Washington State.
Join us for a conversation about innovation, sustainability, technology and social justice in business; and learn how Pinchot University is leading the path to build resilient economies. Featuring:
- Gifford Pinchot III, Co-Founder at Pinchot & Company; and Co-Founder & President Emeritus of the Bainbridge Graduate Institute (now Pinchot University)
- Libba Pinchot, Co-Founder at Pinchot & Company; and Co-Founder of the Bainbridge Graduate Institute
