Share Global Leadership for Social Impact with Farooq Kathwari, CEO Ethan Allen

Event Details

Farooq Kathwari, CEO Ethan Allenlncreasing global connectedness demands a new model for social leadership that extends beyond the mainstay of "cultural competency for business". Mr. Farooq Kathwari, CEO of Ethan Allen, will speak about the need for global leaders to identify their personal passion and engage with social issues. His experience as a humanitarian and social advocate informs his discussion of the need for emerging cross-sector leaders to be active, conscious global citizens as well as "executives". Successful global leaders must address the ways in which their efforts affect local peoples and incorporate social efforts to have a positive impact in the world. 

Mr. Kathwari has been active in public service, often supporting initiatives that strive to improve the lives of people affected by war and other turmoil.  He is a director and former chair of Refugees International, an independent organization that advocates on behalf of displaced people, and a director of the International Rescue Committee, which responds to humanitarian crises around the world. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and on the advisory board of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a nonpartisan global security think tank in Washington DC. In 1996, Kathwari founded, and continues to chair, the Kashmir Study Group, which after extensive interaction with regional leadership, issued recommendations for easing tensions in the area. He is also a member of President Obama's Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
