Details

Lauren Magnusson (Booth '15), Director of ESG and Trust & Transparency at Walmart, came from a non-profit background pre-MBA. Post-MBA she moved to Walmart where she started in Finance but quickly moved to the ESG team. As Director of ESG she is responsible for shaping Walmart’s ESG agenda, elevating Walmart’s ESG disclosures and practices, and building institutional capabilities.

Come learn from Lauren about how she moved into ESG post-MBA and how she used her non-traditional MBA background to get there. She'll also share more about Walmart's current ESG initiatives. This includes Project Gigaton which is Walmart's commitment to avoid one billion metric tons of greenhouse gases from the global value chain by 2030 by helping suppliers reduce the carbon output of their operations.
