We have once again had the pleasure of participating in yet another virtual debate. Students from CIS – The College for International Studies debated the following topic: “We Should Only Support Businesses That Support Human Rights.” Begoña Morales was our special guest speaker this time around.  She is an expert in several areas such as sustainability, corporate social responsibility, and transparency.  Furthermore, she is the CEO and founder of Conese, a consultancy firm specialized in strategic planning for many types of organizations.  Her presence and insights were of great utility to all in attendance, especially the many students who were inspired enough to ask a multitude of questions.

We would like to express our gratitude to our guest speaker, Begoña, to both debate teams (The Lions and The Cool Ones), and of course to our great colleagues and organizers of this debate, Dr. Máirín Kelly and Patrick Doherty.
