Graziadio School Hosts 2017 SEER Symposium
Pepperdine Magazine is the feature magazine for Pepperdine University and its growing community of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends.
The Graziadio School of Business and Management hosted the sixth annual Socially, Environmentally, and Ethically Responsible (SEER) Symposium on February 3.
This year’s theme, “The Recipe for Innovation,” provided a forum for examining all facets of business and challenging conventions to change the way communities think about food, energy, fashion, economic opportunity, and sustainability.
With an interactive format that encouraged participation from an audience of graduate business students and business leaders, this gathering of a broad group of world-changing innovators, executives, thought-leaders, and entrepreneurs challenged and inspired attendees.
This year’s industry leaders included representatives from Clean Energy Renewable Fuels; Honest Tea; Defy Ventures, Inc.; Whole Foods Market; and Honeywell International, Inc.
The event also showcased the annual “Fast Pitch” competition, in which students from across the University are given the chance to pitch an entrepreneurial idea in front of the SEER community for feedback.
