Anna Walker, senior director of public policy and advocacy at denim jeans marketer Levi Strauss & Co. has been selected to join the Aspen Institute Business and Society Program’s seventh class of First Mover Fellows.

As per a Levis press release, individuals chosen for this program are working within companies to unite business growth with a sustainable society in the products and services they are developing.

The initial Fellowship year includes three seminars built around the core themes of innovation, leadership, reflection and community.

“We are thrilled to welcome Anna Walker into the community,” said Nancy McGaw, creator and director of the First Movers Fellowship Program.

“The Fellowship serves as an innovation lab and leadership development opportunity that delivers lasting value to companies and society,” Mcgaw observed.

She added, “The curriculum also prompts Fellows to reflect on their personal purpose and desired impact within their companies and the world.”

The Fellows represent diverse functional responsibilities, such as legal, finance, design, business development and talent management.

“These leaders are working to create new products, services and practices that will achieve greater profitability for their companies in tandem with positive social and environmental impact,” Aspen Institute said.

During the fellowship year, Fellows commit to undertake a ‘next stage innovation project’ that helps their companies integrate profitability and social or environmental value.

Walker’s project will focus on identifying financial and business incentives to help governments and local industry develop sustainable infrastructure, including wastewater treatment, energy and waste disposal.

The goal of the project is to create a sustainable apparel industry in developing countries.

The First Movers Fellowship was developed by the Aspen Institute Business and Society Program (BSP), whose mission is to align business with the long-term health of society by putting values at the heart of practice.

Through dialogue, research, and outreach, Aspen BSP creates opportunities for executives and educators to explore new routes to business sustainability and values-based leadership.

The program has also selected Agata Ramallo Garcia from Nike also from the apparel industry and Jonathan Mangum from Dow Chemicals from the chemical industry. (AR)
