IR-SCJ2

The World Environment Center (WEC), in partnership with SC Johnson and the Ingersoll Rand Foundation, has launched a major new initiative entitled Preparing Business Leaders for a Sustainable Future. The SC Johnson, Ingersoll Rand Foundation and WEC initiative has three major goals: 1) Accelerate the sharing of business strategies, best practices and case studies from companies to the core curriculum of leading business and engineering schools; 2) Provide students with greater opportunities to work with companies as part of their formal university training; and 3) Enable companies to identify talented potential employees well in advance of campus recruiting. SC Johnson and the Ingersoll Rand Foundation are together investing $350,000 in the initiative over the next two years.
