The Intersections Institute announced its fall Public Seminar October 7th exploring a framework within which businesses and social ministry/social service organizations may advance and experience more substantive intersections together. Held at the Brossman Center at Philadelphia Seminary, the Institute will present a panel symposium comprising diverse perspectives around the proposition: “The corporate pursuit of creating shared value can be enhanced through collaboration with social ministry/social service organizations.”
Topics will include corporate experience in the practice of socially responsible strategy; entrepreneurial practices led by business school faculty initiatives; social ministry organization perspectives from an SMO chief executive standpoint; and ethical guidance from the perspective of seminary faculty insights into organizational leadership.
Presenting are: Dr. TL Hill, Temple University Fox School of Business, and Managing Director of Fox School’s Enterprise Management Consulting Practice (EMC), in the MBA program, Dr. James Childs, Fendt Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Lutheran Seminary; Larry R. Webber, Managing Director, Institute for Strategic Management Inc (ISM), Latoria J. Farmer, National Director, Diversity and Corporate Responsibility, KPMG LLP, and Dr. Patricia W. Savage, President/CEO, Allegheny Lutheran Social Ministries (ALSM).
The Intersections Institute, directed by James Scott, challenges faith-inspired professionals to acquire and enhance managerial, business and theological acumen necessary to thrive at the intersections of service and leadership. To this end, the Institute coordinates two vanguard educational opportunities: the Masters in Public Leadership (MAPL), offered at The Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, in collaboration with Temple University’s School of Social Work and Fox School of Business; and the Certificate in Leadership of Faith-Based Organizations (CLFO), offered at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg.
