Description

The San Francisco Chapter of the Berkeley-Haas Alumni Network is offering “Pay What You Want” pricing for this event. It is entirely up to you what you pay to attend this event. Pay whatever you like. We want to know what this event is worth to you. Any surplus remaining after we cover our costs for this event will be used to support future events for the San Francisco Chapter of the Berkeley-Haas Alumni Network.

Berkeley-Haas Professor Emeritus David Vogel, a noted authority on the politics of health, safety, and environmental regulation will discuss his forthcoming book, titled “The California Effect: How the Golden State Became Green.”

Professor Vogel will share his extensive research on California environmental leadership and will explain how, although brown may be the new green during the state’s recent drought, California is, and has historically been, unabashedly green.

Vogel points to four key factors that explain the state’s environmental orientation and says that California’s most important lesson may be the extent to which it has demonstrated that economic growth and environmental protection can reinforce each other.

David Vogel is the Solomon P. Lee Professor Emeritus in Business Ethics at the Berkeley Haas School of Business as well as Professor Emeritus of Political Science at UC Berkeley.

We are excited to be hosted by the San Francisco Department of the Environment (SFE) and pleased to feature Director Debbie Raphael who was appointed in 2014 by Mayor Lee as a proven leader committed to extending SF’s “environmental leadership in a way that is inclusive of our diverse communities and builds on our innovation economy."

As Director of SF Environment, Raphael works with the City’s residents and businesses to take an active role in protecting and enhancing their homes, businesses, and the urban environment.

Raphael received a Bachelor’s degree in Biology/Plant Ecology from the University of California at Berkeley and a Master’s degree in Physiological Plant Ecology from the University of California at Los Angeles.
