Leadership Sandy Springs hosted its sixth annual award-winning leadership event, Live Learn Lead, Feb. 27 at Cox Enterprises. The event featured dinner and a panel discussion around the Business Roundtable’s recent Statement of Purpose committing to a new standard of corporate social responsibility.
The panelists included Michael Goltzman, vice president of Global Policy and Sustainability at The Coca-Cola Company; Erika James, dean of the Goizueta School of Business at Emory University, and Christopher Womack, president of External Affairs at Southern Company. The moderator was David Rubinger, publisher of the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
“Leadership Sandy Springs is pleased and proud to present a community leadership event of this caliber,” said Executive Director Jan Paul. “We began working on Live Learn Lead last summer following news of the Business Roundtable’s new statement of corporate responsibility. We appreciate that two of our distinguished panelists represent companies, The Coca Cola Company and Southern Company, whose CEOs signed the new statement.”
