In this session, Timothy Maynes, associate professor of organization and human resources, Charles Lindsey, associate professor of marketing, and Mary Ann Rogers, EMBA '98, BA '86, clinical associate professor of organization and human resources, will provide insights for conquering the challenges of cultural change, and will discuss specific efforts in developing a forward-thinking, altruistic model in the School of Management.
