Please join us for a conversation with Jessica Long, Managing Director - Strategy & Sustainability at Accenture.  Jessica will share the latest thinking from Accenture’s Corporate Disruptors report.  Recently launched in Davos, this report was listed as one of the “6 Reports that Drove the Conversation” at the World Economic Forum.

Jessica is on the global leadership team of Accenture Strategy & Sustainability, which helps organizations leverage their assets and capabilities to drive innovation and profitable growth while striving for a positive economic, environmental and social impact. Within her current role, Jessica leads Sustainability Strategy across North America. Her team focuses on a wide range of strategic services across sustainability – including valuation and performance management, responsible business, ethical and responsible supply chains, intelligent cities strategy, efficient and alternative energy solutions, innovative business models & partnerships, digital responsibility, and circular economy. Clients include Fortune 500 companies, SMEs, governments and non-profit organizations. 


This event is part of the GE Colloquium in Sustainability Leadership, a program of the Yale Center for Business and Environment, and supported by the GE Foundation, that brings business professionals and thought leaders to campus to help students understand the challenges of achieving sustainability, and to provide them with necessary skills to prepare for careers in this emerging sector.
