Event description

Description

Johns Hopkins University Provost Sunil Kumar invites students, faculty, and staff to learn from expert panelists about divestment of university endowments from fossil fuel companies on Monday, April 17, in Hodson Hall.

In response to mounting evidence of the environmental and public health impacts of the fossil fuel industry, the JHU Forum on Fossil Fuel Divestment will examine the social, ethical, and financial implications institutions should consider when deciding whether or not to divest from fossil fuel companies.

Bloomberg Distinguished Professor Paul Ferraro will moderate the forum, which will include a panel discussion featuring:

+ Rafael Castilla, director of investments and structuring at the University of Michigan Investment Office

+ Ellen Dorsey, executive director of the Wallace Global Fund, a private foundation focused on progressive social change in the fields of environment, democracy, human rights, and corporate accountability

+ David Powell, the co-portfolio manager of the Large-Cap Sustainable Growth Strategy for Brown Advisory

+ Frank Wolak, Stanford University’s Holbrook Working Professor of Commodity Price Studies in the Dept. of Economics and Director of the Program on Energy and Sustainable Development

The event will take place in Room 110 of Hodson Hall from 6:00-8:15 p.m. Light refreshments will be served at 5:30 p.m.
