The Evolution of a Corporate Idealist

There is an invisible army of people deep inside the world’s companies, pushing them towards more positive business practices. Obviously, they don’t always succeed. Christine Bader was one of those people, having spent nine years in love with her employer, BP: until a string of BP accidents, culminating in the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Bader’s story of working in big business is unique in its details, but not in its themes; she will share her story, and weave in stories and reflections from the dozens of peers and experts she interviewed for her book, “The Evolution of a Corporate Idealist: When Girl Meets Oil.”
