Description

Our guest on the September 20th Conference Call is Dr. Amy Sherman. The topic is "Business as an Agent of Community Benefit."

We're pleased to have Dr. Amy Sherman with us as our guest for this edition of Businesses Doing Good. In this conference call, Amy will tell stories of businesses that are improving the quality of life for people where they serve. She will also share a framework for the movement that we are seeing among business leaders of doing good in their communities.

Amy Sherman, Ph.D., is a Senior Fellow with the Sagamore Institute. She directs the Institute’s Center on Faith in Communities (CFIC). CFIC provides training, technical assistance, and consulting to faith-based and community based social service providers and to religious congregations desiring to invest more effectively in their neighborhoods. The author of six books and over 80 articles and essays, Sherman is founder and former executive director of Charlottesville Abundant life Ministries, a holistic, cross-cultural, whole-family, church-based outreach in an urban neighborhood of approximately 380 lower-income, single-parent families. Sherman’s most recent book, Kingdom Calling: Vocational Stewardship for the Common Good, won recent honors as Christianity Today’s choice as Book of the Year in the Christian Living category.

Sherman earned her BA in Political Science at Messiah College and her M.A. and Ph.D. in international economic development from the University of Virginia. She volunteers as a Senior Fellow with the International Justice Mission and is a longtime member of Trinity Presbyterian Church in Charlottesville, VA.

From Sustainable to Flourishing Businesses and Communities

Today businesses are going beyond "sustainability" which reduces the ecological footprint, to "doing good" in the communities where they are based and in places where they offer their products or services. This is a movement toward flourishing businesses and communities.

This series of conference calls on the third Thursday of each month at 10 a.m. Central Time lifts up examples of business as an agent of community benefit. Dr. Glenn Barth, our host, will interview the guest in the first half of each conference call and then open the lines for callers to ask questions in the second half of these highly interactive one hour calls.
