Loyola University Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business and Management will present Building a Better World Through Business, an annual series of events celebrating ways that businesses create sustainable economic and social development in their communities. Events in the series will be held virtually and take place on March 3, 10, and 24, 2021. All events are free and open to the public, but registration is required.
“Building a Better World Through Business offers us a chance to recognize and honor the many ways that businesses support and strengthen communities,” said Kathleen A. Getz, Ph.D., dean of the Sellinger School. “This year, the events are focused on the role of business in advancing racial justice. The Loyola community—including our students, faculty, and staff—is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion and to building a just society through innovative and collaborative change in our Baltimore community.”
The event series begins with a keynote address by Marcus Bullock, founder and CEO of Flikshop Inc., a software company that builds tools to assist people who are incarcerated with staying connected to their families and build community. His presentation, “Advancing Equity Through Entrepreneurship: My Journey from Incarceration to Innovation,” on Wednesday, March 3, at noon will discuss his experiences with incarceration, launching his own business, and how he is using entrepreneurship for social change.
