Intersections Institute Presents Oct 7th Public Seminar: "Creating Shared Value through Collaboration"

The Intersections Institute announced its fall Public Seminar exploring a framework within which businesses and social ministry/social service organizations may advance and experience more substantive intersections together. Scheduled for Friday, October 7th, 2011 at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia, 7301 Germantown Ave. in the Mt Airy section of Philadelphia, the Institute will present a panel symposium comprising diverse perspectives around the proposition: “The corporate pursuit of creating shared value can be enhanced through collaboration with social ministry/social service organizations.” 

Topics will include corporate experience in the practice of socially responsible strategy; entrepreneurial practices led by business school faculty initiatives; social ministry organization perspectives from an SMO chief executive standpoint; and ethical guidance from the perspective of seminary faculty insights into organizational leadership. The concept of “shared value” and its metrics will be explored.

Presenting are: Dr. TL Hill, Associate Professor in Strategic Management, Temple University Fox School of Business, and Managing Director of Fox School’s Enterprise Management Consulting Practice (EMC), in the MBA program; Dr. James Childs, Fendt Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Lutheran Seminary, Colombus, OH; Larry R. Webber, Managing Director, Institute for Strategic Management Inc (ISM); Latoria J. Farmer, National Director, Diversity and Corporate Responsibility, KPMG LLP; and Dr. Patricia W. Savage, President/CEO, Allegheny Lutheran Social Ministries (ALSM), Hollidaysburg, PA.

The event is free and open to the public, and is scheduled for 10 am to 12 noon in Benbow Hall, The Brossman Center on the seminary campus. Further information is available at the Institute’s website at

The Intersections Institute, directed by James Scott, challenges faith-inspired professionals to acquire and enhance managerial, business and theological acumen necessary to thrive at the intersections of service and leadership. To this end, the Institute coordinates two vanguard educational opportunities: the Masters in Public Leadership (MAPL), offered at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia, in collaboration with Temple University’s School of Social Work and Fox School of Business; and the Certificate in Leadership of Faith-Based Organizations (CLFO), offered at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg.
