A Tribunal on Failed Governance: Climate Change, Inequality, and Jobless Growth

Back in February 2015 The Milano School hosted a Tribunal on global governance failures regarding increasing levels of social and economic inequality, unequal and jobless economic growth, and climate change. The Tribunal also launched an alliance between the Ford Foundation and the Milano School. The Tribunal shed light on the way that conferences such as Habitat III or International Climate Change Conferences can serve as global intermediaries to increase a city’s capacity and governance structures to operate in their particular urban situation. The Tribunal presented testimonies from affected peoples around the globe, indicting cities and governance for inaction regarding climate change, inequity, and jobless growth. A distinguished cross-cultural panel of judges heard the cases presented by a diverse collection of experts and witnesses.

OCM Student Samantha Goldman Publishes Piece on 2014 Elections

SBG 1 headshotSamantha Goldman, an Organizational Change Management student, published a piece related to campaign elections and organizational culture which was also part of her Advanced Seminar project.  The article, which appeared in linkedin.com, “identified 10 key aspects of campaign culture that can be applied in non-campaign organizations as a way to amp-up staff engagement”.  Samantha highlights the differences between a campaign and an organization, the former not necessarily sustainable due to its inherent time-bound characteristics and the latter whose mission is to be structurally and financially sustainable over the long term.  However, the two also have many aspects in common such as having a singular mission and vision, capacity building, relying on stories and narratives and more.
