Giving It All Away: Doing Well in Business While Doing Good in the World

About this event Registration including coffee and refreshments: 9 a.m. Program: 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. Please join us for a conversation with Bob Forrester, Newman's Own Foundation President and CEO, and Laura Bloomberg, Humphrey School of Public Affairs Associate Dean, on the history of Newman's Own from its founding by Hollywood actor Paul Newman in 1982 through present day. The discussion will include a broad overview of the company's business model including its governance structure, revenues and profits, and how its business and philanthropy interface. Forrester will share the challenges and opportunities associated with the company's unique business model, based on 100% of profits going to charity. This concept was considered by some as doomed to fail from the beginning, but has prevailed and is going strong after 35 years in a competitive industry. Forrester’s 40+ year career has been devoted to philanthropy and support of the global non-governmental and nonprofit sectors. A close friend of Paul Newman, he was asked to become the first president of Newman’s Own Foundation when the Foundation was created in 2005.
