THE HUMAN SIDE OF GLOBALIZATION

In the past few months the mainstream media has been dominated with stories about globalization, corporate responsibility and business ethics. Each of these timely elements are key components of Educating for Justice’s 2002-2003 National Speaking Tour events.

EFJ’s updated presentation, “The Human Side of Globalization: Nike in Indonesia – A Case Study,” is an entry point for students into the complex challenges of maintaining a commitment to ethics, human rights and corporate responsibility, while developing a global platform for goods and services and delivering market, growth and stock price.

Through an updated, interactive, multi-media presentation that has been delivered at over 120 schools across the United States, EFJ Directors, Leslie Kretzu and Jim Keady present this case study from the perspective of the producers in the global supply chain. Based on their experiences during time spent over the past three years living in community with Nike’s factory workers in Indonesia, Kretzu and Keady attempt to de-commodify Nike’s “labor” and as such, force their audience to deal in human terms with the women, men and sometimes children, who are the foundation of Nike’s global manufacturing.

EFJ's “bottom-up” analytical approach to Nike’s supply chain management is much different than what is often seen in U.S. business schools, which at times use Nike as a “best practices” model.

It is becoming fairly apparent that for the business community to successfully meet the global challenges it currently faces, they will have to welcome those perspectives which have been traditionally dismissed as “activist."

Let Educating for Justice help you build the bridge between the activist and the business communities on your campus and break open the forum for the exchange of ideas - ideas that will focus on real solutions for protecting human and workers rights and the environment, while building businesses that are truly sustainable and profitable.

"Truly, Jim and Leslie live Bellarmine's motto- they live for others- and they present this ideology in a most powerful way."

- Kevin McMahon, US Olympian and faculty member at Bellarmine College Prep

"I felt that your presentations and presence at the IAJBS was valuable

and consciousness-raising. It made some of us question our assumptions about globalization and our complacency about these issues... I have revised the paper I presented at the Taipei conference to incorporate more of the sweatshop labor issues, particularly the production rationale behind showing these MNC's that it is really in their best long-run interests to provide decent working conditions to their workers."

- Robert Mefford, PhD, Professor of Operations Management and Intl. Business, USF
