Cathy Rodgers of IBM Talks about Sustainability with Fall 2013 Students

Cathy Rodgers during a presentation about sustainability to the SAS shipboard community.

Cathy Rodgers, vice president of global opportunities at IBM, sailed on the Fall 2013 voyage from Ireland to Morocco, and held a captive audience among our shipboard community during her talk on sustainability and global responsibility for the environment. Ms. Rodgers is a frequent speaker on SAS voyages and last sailed on the Spring 2013 Unreasonable at Sea semester.  During her talk to the shipboard community, Ms. Rodgers addressed the social significance of sustainable development as well as the impact it can have from a community to a global scale. In 2010, Ms. Rodgers founded Rooted in Hope, a nonprofit organization that plants trees throughout sub-Saharan Africa to promote the conservation and restoration of natural resources through reforestation, watershed protection, and  environmental education. The organization to date has planted over 40,000 trees.
