INNOVATE FOR A BETTER WORLD: INSIGHTS AND STORIES FROM THE NIKE JOURNEYDate & Time:

Apr 28, 2010 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

LocationDively Building, Dining Room

11240 Bellflower Road, CWRU

Darcy Winslow will share the Nike story from her perspective and role in the journey toward a higher level of sustainability.

For more than 20 years Winslow held senior positions and led several aspects of Nike's business and strategic initiatives (not in Corporate Responsibility) and consistently found ways to use values to create value.

In her Fowler Center talk, she will bring to life the various approaches used to engage and inspire Nike employees and partners throughout the value chain to take action-from her early Nike days of being the first woman product developer within the footwear business to her work and experience with their contract manufacturing partners throughout Asia.

"Sustainability, in its simplest form," she explains, "is the capacity to endure. This is predicated on communities and businesses ? enterprises of all sizes ? to operate not at the expense of the future, but in favor of our future."

In the spirit of one of Nike's most famous mantras, "There Is No Finish Line," Winslow's message calls for us to sustain the integration of equal parts innovation and inspiration in all that we do to further progress toward a sustainable and regenerative future.
