Dr. Rae André "Lead for the Planet: Five Practices for Confronting Climate Change" (COPLAC)
Georgia College, in partnership with the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC) and the Management & Organizational Behavior Teaching Society (MOBTS), will host a national forum with Dr. Rae André, professor emeritus at Northeastern University’s D’Amore-McKim School of Business.
André will present and facilitate a public forum on Tuesday, March 23rd from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Part of Georgia College’s Inspire! series on leadership, André will lead a discussion on sustainability leadership. “Growth is finite, natural capital is priceless, and human progress must be measured in terms of both economics and the quality of life,” says André. The forum will be hosted virtually and will be open to the public.
Dr. Rae André is the author of Lead for the Planet: Five Practices for Confronting Climate Change. Lead for the Planet shifts the focus to how we, the members of Team Humanity, are going to organize to solve the twin issues of climate change and energy evolution. The book channels a broad range of social science perspectives, from anthropology to psychology to economics, to help decision-makers explore how Team Humanity can get this thing done.
An organizational psychologist, André is professor emeritus of leadership and sustainability and instructor in the D'Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University in Boston. Her courses promote systemic thinking on climate change and energy evolution. Aimed at high level undergraduates, MBAs, and professionals, they include sustainability for organizations ("weak" sustainability) along with sustainability for the planet ("strong" sustainability). Her work has reached students in a variety of disciplines from management to engineering to liberal arts. André received a Ph.D. in organizational psychology from the University of Michigan, an M.A. in film studies from the University of California at Los Angeles, and a B.A. (cum laude) in English from Cornell University.
