Conscious Capitalism with John Mackey
of Whole Foods Market

PLUS ‘ESG on Broadway’, an Original Shareholder Engagement Production
Thursday, April 19
5:45pm – 8:15pm
Morgan Stanley Headquarters
1585 Broadway (entrance on W. 48th St)

Join us for a fireside chat with John Mackey, co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods Market. In addition to transforming how we eat and leading the natural and organic grocer to $17 billion in sales as a Fortune 500 company, Mackey co-founded the Conscious Capitalism movement to create a new blueprint for doing business with purpose.
Mackey will be interviewed by Wachtell Lipton’s Sabastian V. Niles, an expert in shareholder activism response, governance and M&A, and a champion of long-termism and sustainability in value creation.
Next we will hear from Hilary Irby, Co-Head of Morgan Stanley’s Global Sustainable Finance group, who is focused on mobilizing private-sector capital to address major global challenges. She will give a briefing on the corporate sustainability disconnect and how companies can better communicate their ESG efforts to investors.
Finally, we will turn to the emergence of ‘social’ shareholder activists and take you step-by-step through shareholder engagement around an ESG issue such as gender diversity or climate risk. With real-time participation from BlackRock’s investment stewardship team and Calvert Research and Management, CamberView Partners will advise you, the IRO, as you engage with a major mainstream investor and a social activist in real time.
Don’t miss this action-packed evening heralding the new era of making a difference while making a profit. Advance registration is required.
