A Case Study in Diversifying Corporate America

12:30 PM

Hear from a seasoned corporate executive about his motivations and efforts to create a more inclusive atmosphere at a large, publicly-traded company. With both challenges and successes, Matt initiated efforts to attract and retain a more diverse workforce that would enhance worker satisfaction and company performance.



Matt Laszlo is a recently retired C-suite executive with The Clorox Company, a $6 billion Fortune 500 company that manufactures consumer-packaged products. His time at Clorox as Chief Customer Officer resulted in a turn-around in company performance, delivering top-tier growth four years in a row and over $60 per share stock price growth. He now runs his own executive coaching and consulting concern focused on leadership development principles gained from his corporate experience, highlighted by his relentless focus on authenticity, self-awareness and an innovative, sustainable approach to inclusion and diversity. His current clients include Adidas, Toyota, Clorox and several more. And he is a graduate of Beloit College, class of 1992, with a degree in Economics & Management.

Roy Chapman Andrews Society Distinguished Explorer Award: Lecture

4:30 PM
Neil Shubin, Ph.D has been named recipient of the 2019 Annual Roy Chapman Andrews Society Distinguished Explorer Award. Shubin will be the 17th recipient of this prestigious award.
Neil Shubin is an evolutionary biologist and paleontologist. He is the Robert R. Bensley Professor of Organismal Biology and Anatomy at the University of Chicago and elected member of the National Academy of Sciences.

He supports his evolutionary hypotheses with fossils found during extensive field study in Greenland, Canada, Argentina, China, Morocco, the deserts of the U.S. and, currently, Antarctica.
Shubin has written two popular science books: Your Inner Fish, winner of the best book of 2008 by the National Academy of Sciences and basis of the Emmy Award-winning, three-part PBS series and The Universe Within: The Deep History of the Human Body (2013).
