Getting Unstuck: How to Promote More Sustainable Practices in Our Organizations

All that's required to achieve sustainability, says Rebecca Henderson, is to clean up your current operations and/or rethink the business. "That's easy," she says -- with a smile. Henderson has spent much of her career trying to help firms embrace and survive such transformations.

Intellectual Capital: JoAnne Yates

After over two decades in front of the classroom, Sloan Distinguished Professor of Management JoAnne Yates is spending some time in the dean's office. Long known for her research on organizational communications -- particularly how it is impacted by technology -- Deputy Dean Yates is taking advantage of her opportunity to champion another issue close to her heart: diversity. Believing that diversity has real educational value, Yates has made advancing gender equity a priority. Through this work, Yates hopes to provide role models for women in b-school and expose all students to a wide range of points of view.

Distributed Leadership in the Obama Campaign

The Obama campaign owes its victory not to a single charismatic candidate, but to the efforts of a disciplined and motivated organization whose roots go back to landmark movements of the 1960s. Marshall Ganz describes how the principles and practices he learned around organizing and leadership played out in the most recent presidential election.

Agents of Change: Model Partnerships with Academia

This panel offers some evidence that sustained alliances between academia and other organizations may help us more effectively address climate change issues.

Climate Change: Challenges and Opportunities for Business and Society

If "organizations are the way that ideas change the world," as MIT Sloan Dean Dave Schmittlein puts it, then look to institutions like MIT, which has wrapped its arms around the issues of energy and climate change, to help make sustainability real and attainable. The Dean describes some showcase work launched at MIT, including a long-lasting battery for electric cars, and MIT's own green campus efforts.

Student Stories: Elaine Chow

Elaine Chow doesn't fit the stereotypical image of an opera singer -- she's not heavy-set, middle-aged, or Italian. She does, however, have a wonderful voice and passion to spare, two things that would serve her well in the world of arias and librettos. But this soprano has decided to give up her pursuit of an operatic career in favor of the slightly less glamorous world of nonprofits. After expanding her skill set at MIT Sloan, particularly through her work with the School's NetImpact and SWIM organizations, Elaine hopes to bring much-needed traditional management skills back into the often ill-equipped nonprofit sector. And while it hasn't been easy for her to resist the lure of the big bucks in for-profit, she says she knows where her heart lies, and, for her, that knowledge is priceless. As correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate learned, as a singer and as a businesswoman, Elaine is hitting all the right notes.

Student Stories: Anjuli Gupta, MBA '08

Anjuli Gupta doesn't believe in just doing something good in the world; for her, it's about doing the most good that she can. Passionate about natural resources, Anjuli hopes to focus on energy finance after graduation. Having worked on environmental policy for non-profit, grassroots organizations, she sees finance as a major driver toward positive change. In order accomplish her goals, Anjuli believes that she needs to know how to run a team -- and how to design an organization that is effective. She came to MIT Sloan to learn all that and more. Anjuli spoke with correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate about what she gained from the first-semester core, the rollercoaster ride of internship interviews, and spring break in Costa Rica.
