The study, designed to contribute to the private sector agenda for the incoming administration, used a scenarios method to propose approaches to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the light of rapid changes in technology and in the global economy. The study highlighted the key roles of innovation and entrepreneurship if Mexican businesses are to meet the UN SDGs’ social and environmental targets and maintain a competitive economy. However, it also underscored the need for careful governance of technology to address novel challenges and opportunities.

OCTOBER 11: Advancing Women, The Family Business Way

Torry Katsiroubas Stamm, President, Katsiroubas Brothers & Lauri Union, Executive Director, Institute for Family  Entrepreneurship

Co-sponsored by the Babson Institute for Family Entrepreneurship

Research has found that the traits that make a family business successful, create an environment that is more welcoming and conducive to the development of women leaders – resulting in women advancing further and faster than any other industry. Join in the discussion, as our co-hosts, draw from first-hand experience as leaders of family business, to discuss these traits and how their application can be used to advance women both within family and non-family business organizations. 

About Torry Katsiroubas Stamm

Torry Katsiroubas Stamm is the President and 4th generation co-owner of her family business, Katsiroubas Brothers. Throughout her childhood, Torry watched the family business grow with the leadership of her father. 
Unlike most children, Torry spent her school and summer vacations supporting her father as he continued to shape the company and become a leader in produce distribution in the Northeast.  

In 2005, Torry officially joined the company to work alongside her father and eventually her brother too. In 2013, Torry became the President of Katsiroubas Brothers upon her father’s passing from ALS. Torry leads the company, continuing her father’s legacy. Katsiroubas Brothers has doubled the revenue of the business since Torry and her brother became owners. Katsiroubas Brothers operates in Boston from a 80,000 square foot facility. Six days a week, 65 trucks head out all over New England to deliver produce, dairy and specialty products. The company reaches a customer base of 700 restaurants, hotels and institutions with over 5,000 product offerings. 

Torry founded the Nick Katsiroubas Foundation in 2014 in honor of her father. The mission of the Foundation is to continue her father’s legacy of giving by supporting local children’s organizations as well as supporting the ALS community. 

Torry earned her BA in Communications from Boston College and her MBA from University of Massachusetts, Boston. 


About Lauri Union

Lauri Union comes to Babson with extensive experience both in family business leadership and entrepreneurship through organizational transformation. At the age of 27, she became president and CEO of her family business, Union Corrugating Company, a deeply troubled manufacturer of building products. Union grew the company significantly and led it to become an industry leader, remaining on the board after a private equity sale. Her work at Union Corrugating is featured in two Harvard Business School cases. She also led the turnaround of a large family business in the food industry from severe distress to stability and profitability in just 12 months. As an Entrepreneur in Residence at Harvard Business School, Union worked with students across the university. She currently serves as an advisor to ed-tech companies and education-related not for profits such as Teachers Connect and Next Dor.

Union is an active volunteer. In her role as president of the board of the Solomon Schechter Day School of Greater Boston, she led the school through a time of existential crisis, creating an innovative new strategic vision and installing the leadership needed to achieve it. Union also is a member of the Board of the Planned Parenthood League of MA and served as an elected member of Brookline Town Meeting.

Union earned her BA in economics Magna Cum Laude from Princeton University as well her MBA from Harvard. She began her career as a management consultant at Bain and Company, and is both a Wildacres and Acharai Leadership Fellow.

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM The Shepherdess of the Glaciers
Meet Tsering. She is one of the last shepherdesses who still lives with her flock in the heights of the Gya-Miru valley in Ladakh, Himalayan mountains, 5000 meters above sea level. The Shepherdess of the Glaciers is a film lovingly made by Tsering’s brother, Stanzin Dorjai, who will join us to introduce the film and to host a Q&A after viewing. The film follows Tsering in her harsh and precarious life, often solidarity, challenged by a difficult climate and sometimes hostile nature—neither of which prevent this woman from singing, laughing, and philosophizing. Join us to witness this uplifting film of the rich relationships among humans, animals, and the earth in one of the most remote places on earth.

About Financing the Future

In the Financing the Future series, hosted in collaboration with The Cutler Center for Investments and Finance, we will explore the crucial role of capital in driving social progress.

How will we finance our future? What new financing mechanisms are being created? What role do large corporations, NGOs, government agencies, community foundations, family offices, philanthropists and investors play? What's working? What's needed?

Investing in social progress and managing societal dilemmas is complex and takes time. It requires a new understanding, new forms of collaborative relationships, innovative financing schemes, and the moral and financial courage to put capital where the highest ROI is recalibrated and recalculated to accelerate economic and social progress.

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM Intergalactic Design Guide: A Conversation with Cheryl Heller
A Conversation with Cheryl Heller, author of
The Intergalactic Design Guide:
Harnessing the Creative Potential of Social Design


Social design is a new kind of leadership.

It offers innovative approaches for increasing creativity, strengthening relationships, and developing our capacity to collaborate—with the potential to transform everything from corporate cultures to cities. It pushes us to become comfortable with uncertainty, to design ourselves for change.

In The Intergalactic Design Guide, business strategist and designer Cheryl Heller explains eleven common principles, a step-by-step process, and essential skills for successful social design. She illustrates the social design process with in-depth examples—from the CEO of the largest carpet manufacturer in the world to a young entrepreneur with a passion for reducing food waste. While change-makers like Paul Farmer and Oprah Winfrey have instinctively practiced social design for decades, Heller organizes concepts applied by leaders in diverse fields so that they become accessible to all of us, no matter the focus of our work.

7:00 AM - 8:00 AM Wellness-Power Yoga with Lauren Shaffer

Lauren Shaffer found yoga in 2011 as a stressed out college student in need of a calm and quiet spot to unwind. As a teacher, her mission is to provide students with a safe, sacred space with her guidance, knowledge and tools offered as support. She loves to teach a variety of classes from restorative to power, all of which tie breath with movement to a well thought out and sequenced flow. She includes the solid backbones of the practice—like functional movement and energetic organization—always presented with lightheartedness as she accommodate all levels. She also loves to bring some fun into her classes. Lauren’s focus is to ensure her students leave with their bodies feeling stronger, as well as a clearer mind helping them take on the rest of their day with a smile!

7:00 PM - 9:30 PM The Love of the Nightingale

A Play By Timberlake Wertenbaker

In The Love of the Nightingale, a retelling of the Greek Philomele myth, playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker reckons with the silence and complicity that often accompany violence against women. A work that is enthralling and witty, The Love of the Nightingale is a modern morality play that asks audiences to consider the dimensions of authority, memory, and retribution. This significant play for our times demonstrates the high cost of saying nothing and the immense power of speaking up.

Directed by Sarah Rozene
Presented by The Empty Space Theater, a faculty-led company made up of Babson, Wellesley, and Olin students and guest artists.

General Admission Tickets: $15
Babson Faculty/Staff:$10
Students: $5
