N.Y. Times Outlines Congregation's Corporate Social Responsibility Efforts

I thought you would enjoy the article by Kevin Roose published in the November 12 New York Times about our congregation's work in shareholder advocacy.

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/13/business/sisters-of-st-francis-the-quiet-shareholder-activists.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all%3Fsrc%3Dtp&smid=fb-share

Mr. Roose begins the article with an account of Sr. Nora Nash's visit to Goldman Sachs, an event which resulted in a deluge of responses to the congregation and to Sr. Nora, our director of corporate social responsibility. Kevin Roose later visited our motherhouse to interview Sr. Nora and other members of our shareholder advocacy committee. From that interview and visit came this article. What I particularly like about the article is that Roose presents some of the history of our congregation's efforts in shareholder activism and the development of our corporate social responsibility office--what it is and what it is not--and describes some of our other efforts to live out our commitment statement which calls us to become a voice for those who have no voice ( http://www.osfphila.org/about/commitment.)   He also includes references to our collaboration with other organizations such as the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (http://www.iccr.org/.)
