Molly MacEachen is a research associate for the Space & Sustainability Initiative (SSI) at the University of Colorado Boulder where she performs project management, coordinates RA and volunteer work, and plays a crucial role in the operations of the core research team. She recently graduated magna cum laude from CU Boulder with a dual degree in business and sociology. During her time at CU, Molly’s research on sustainable innovation, corporate social responsibility, and interactions between industry and society was funded by multiple grants & scholarships and showcased at conferences around the globe including the Ivey Sustainability Conference. In addition to her research, Molly is a consultant for the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) where she focuses more broadly on the topic of corporate sustainability reporting. Further, as a student at a United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education (UN PRME) Champion school and author of the 2017 and 2019 Leeds School of Business UN PRME Champion Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) Reports, Molly has participated in and spoken at various UN PRME conferences. Through these connections – and because of her work with the UNGC – she was invited to be an Advisor on the PRME Sub-Committee on SIP Impact. Ultimately, Molly’s work is centered around the private sector’s impact on the world, focusing specifically on training the next generation of leaders to be responsible and sustainable.
