EP 43 - Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability with Marcy Twete

Kristen talks work and life with Marcy Twete, founder of her own consulting business and expert in corporate responsibility and sustainability. From the failure of her first venture into entrepreneurship to the success she found through networking in a new city, fearlessness and ambition have played important roles in Marcy’s journey to where she is now. They also discuss the responsibility of corporations to benefit society and the environment, especially now when those in the public eye are called on more than ever to do good. The conclusion of this episode is a timely discussion on the best mindset to adopt towards money during this pandemic.

Marcy Twete is a recognized leader in corporate responsibility and sustainability for multinational Fortune 500 companies, and has a background both broad and deep in ESG (environmental, social, governance) factors, ethical decision-making, marketing and communications. She is the founder and CEO Marcy Twete Consulting where she advises corporations, nonprofit organizations and their investors on environmental, social and governance risks and reputation management.

In addition to leading her consulting practice, Marcy also co-hosts Office Baggage, a podcast that tackles topics for women in business that are all too often brushed under the office rug. In June 2020, she will launch Table Stakes: The Podcast for Responsible, Sustainable Businesses & Leaders, discussing the issues of sustainability with forward-thinking leaders to forecast the future of responsible business.

Marcy is a proud Trustee at the Chicago Architecture Center, and a former member of the Boards of Directors for Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana and Step Up. She received her undergraduate degree in Political Science from the College of Saint Benedict and her MBA from Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. She resides in Chicago with her husband Charlie, her tabby cat Betsey and her terrier mix Pearl.
