International Week: “Multinational Companies and Corporate Global Citizenship” Nov. 14

You are invited to join a lively discussion on the global influence of multinational companies based in Central Illinois, as part of International Education Week 2018. “Multinational Companies and Corporate Global Citizenship” – A Conversation with Kathryn Spitznagle, Global Sustainability Director, Caterpillar Inc.

  • Wed., Nov. 14
  • 11:30 am to 1 pm
  • Room 212C/D, East Peoria Campus

We will explore several aspects of corporate global citizenship, including: In which regions of the globe do they operate, and why? To what extent do they promote sustainable development, and what are the outcomes? What opportunities do these companies offer our students, both at home and abroad? How should are students prepare themselves to work, live and thrive in an increasingly interconnected, interdependent and diverse global community?

For questions, please contact International Education Program Director Dr. Barbara Burton at (309) 694-8817.
