During the academic year, CSRI works closely with the Kennedy School's Business and Government Policy Interest Council to plan events for students and the wider community. We are particularly grateful to the Visiting Practitioners who are featured at our dinner series and on our panels, and look forward to further opportunities for collaboration with our colleagues in the field. The listing of upcoming events for Fall 2013 is below. Note: RSVP is required for all events.

Join CSRI for a lunch discussion with Lance Pierce, Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer of Ceres. Lance oversees Ceres’ operations, strategic planning, and programs, which focus on working with leading companies, investors, public interest groups, policymakers and other stakeholders to advance sustainable solutions to reduce carbon emissions, protect natural resources, ensure safe conditions for workers, and reduce the reliance on fossil fuels while transitioning to a clean energy economy. Lance previously served with the Union of Concerned Scientists as Director of the Climate & Energy Program, and Harvard Business School, where he was Project Director in the launch of the Harvard Advanced Leadership Initiative. He began his career in sustainable development, as principal of a consultancy working with United Nations agencies and leading international development NGOs, and as a volunteer in the Peace Corps. Lance holds an MA in Anthropology from New York University and an MPA from HKS. This event is limited to students at Harvard and schools that offer cross-registration with the Kennedy School.
