Speakers: Ashley Ruiz of McKinstry and Wendy Weiker of Republic Services

Construction companies are not usually thought of as being the epitome of good corporate citizenship as the nature of their business is hard on the environment. There is a firm that is trying to create the gold standard in their area. Ashley Ruiz of McKinstry will speak to us about their approach to CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) and how this manifests itself throughout the organization and its business dealings. Much time will be spent on its engagement with the community by partnering with carefully selected nonprofits.

Joining Ashley on the panel will be Wendy Weiker of Republic Services.
