After more than 30 years in Manufacturing and as Manager of Social Sustainability at Ford Motor Company, I now support integration of human rights, ethics and environmental justice in supply chain management for manufacturing, agriculture and service companies. I am on the faculty at my beloved alma mater, Virginia Commonwealth University, and my efforts include humanitarian supply chains and sustainable logistics.
