Mark Weinberger, global chairman and CEO of EY, will deliver the 33rd Robert S. Hatfield Fellow in Economic Education Lecture on Thursday, Sept. 17, at 3 p.m. in Alice Statler Auditorium.

The event is free and open to the public, and it will be livestreamed on CornellCast.

Titled “Going Long: Leadership Strategies for a Volatile World,” the lecture will be followed by a question-and-answer session moderated by Cornell President Elizabeth Garrett.

Weinberger will offer his perspective on the global economy and what current trends mean for business leaders and young professionals. He also will share insights on how to build an organization nimble enough to navigate short-term volatility while achieving long-term success, how to infuse purpose into overall strategy and daily operations, and what skills are required for all people entering the workforce today.

As chairman and CEO of EY (formerly Ernst & Young) Weinberger heads a global professional services organization that provides assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services and has 200,000 employees in more than 150 countries.

Weinberger previously has served as assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of the Treasury in the George W. Bush administration. He also was appointed by President Clinton to serve on the U.S. Social Security Administration Advisory Board. He was chief of staff of Clinton’s 1994 Bipartisan Commission on Entitlement and Tax Reform. He co-founded Washington Counsel PC, a law and legislative advisory firm in Washington, D.C., which merged into EY and now operates as Washington Council EY.

In December 2012, Weinberger was presented the prestigious Achievement Award by the Anti-Defamation League. To learn more about Weinberger, read his full bio on the EY website.

The Robert S. Hatfield Fellowship in Economic Education is one of the highest honors Cornell bestows on individuals from the corporate sector and serves as a platform for exchange of ideas between the academic and corporate communities. Hatfield fellows are invited by the president to spend a day on campus interacting with faculty and students and to deliver a public lecture. The Robert S. Hatfield Fund for Economic Education was established in 1980 by the Continental Group Foundation to honor its retiring chairman, president and CEO, Robert S. Hatfield ’37.
