A Spotlight on Organizationsand Their LeadersThat Contribute to a Functioning Society

Saturday, March 9

“A functioning society is comprised of functioning, sustainable organizations across all sectors, which are run by ethical and responsible managers who pay attention to what they do to society and for society.” – Peter Drucker
In our world today, we as leaders, managers, and human beings the world over face numerous problems that are so interdependent and socially complex that no single leader, organization, institution, or country has the ability to solve them. Never before have Peter Drucker’s core principles and vision for a functioning society been more relevant or needed.
The 2019 Drucker Day program showcases organizations and their leaders who have taken the initiative to solve some of the world’s most complex problems.

Hollywood Films and the Role of Storytelling in a Functioning Society

Bettina Sherick (MBA, '98), senior vice president of consumer insights and innovation for 20th Century Fox and founder of Hollywood In Pixels, Inc.
Steve Jobs once said, "The most powerful person in the world is the storyteller. The storyteller sets the vision, values, and agenda of an entire generation that is to come."
In this keynote note, Sherick shares how Hollywood movies, and the powerful storytellers behind them, help contribute to a functioning society.
Sherick is senior vice president of consumer insights and innovation for 20th Century Fox, where she collaborates with a team of data strategists and scientists to find breakthrough ways to understand movie-goers. Sherick is also the founder of Hollywood In Pixels, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of digital marketing content so that generations to come can experience and learn from the campaigns that transformed how Hollywood markets movies.

In Conversation with Author Roger McNamee

A conversation moderated by Jenny Darroch, Henry Y. Hwang Dean, professor, and Drucker brand champion
In his new book Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe, McNamee shares a personal account of how he, as an early mentor to Mark Zuckerberg and investor in his company, woke up to the serious damage Facebook was doing to society and how he tried to stop it.
McNamee has been a Silicon Valley investor for over 35 years. He co-founded successful funds in venture, crossover, and private equity. McNamee's most recent fund, Elevation, included U2's Bono as a co-founder. He is a founding advisor for the Center for Humane Technology, a world-class team of deeply concerned former tech insiders and CEOs who have been fighting to raise awareness of the problems within tech companies and to advance thoughtful solutions to change the system since 2013.

Featuring
Walt Johnson (EMBA '10, MPH '12), head of the World Health Organization's (WHO) emergency and essential surgical care program
Johnson is head of the WHO emergency and essential surgical care program in Geneva, Switzerland. His primary task is the implementation of the World Health Assembly resolution on strengthening emergency and essential surgical care and anesthesia as a component of universal health coverage to increase equitable access to safe, timely, and affordable surgical, obstetric, and anesthetic services to all underserved populations worldwide.
Richard Yochum, president/CEO at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center
Yochum has been employed at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) since 1978, and has served in his current capacity as president and chief executive officer since 1993. He also serves as president of the PVHMC Foundation, a fundraising entity that plays an integral part in providing the community with nationally recognized, high-quality medical services. Yochum is active in many professional and community agencies, including the California Healthcare Insurance Company (CHI, Optima) and Inter Valley Health Plan, and has received awards for his contributions to healthcare, including the Inland Valley News 2016 Excellence in Hospital Administration Award.
Beth Zachary (MAM, Executive Management, ’92), Senior healthcare executive
Zachary has 40 years of healthcare executive management experience including roles as president and CEO of Adventist Health as well as White Memorial Medical Center. While she believes that the successful hospitals of the future will be affiliated with a system, her work has always been driven by the on-the-ground belief that high-performing organizations must put patients and communities at the center of their universe, respect physicians and employeesgiving them a voice in workplace decisions, and be governed by engaged and knowledgeable boards who understand and care for the community.
