Colorado College Events Colorado College Events First Mondays: "The Responsible Company — What We've Learned From Patagonia's First 40 Years" Tue, 14 Oct 2014 09:30:24 MDT <p><em>Monday, February 18, 2013 11:15 AM</em></p><p>Vincent Stanley, the current VP of marketing at the clothing company Patagonia, and co-author with Yvon Chouinard of "The Responsible Company: What We've Learned From Patagonia's First 40 Years" will speak on his recently published book and his experiences with Patagonia since the company's founding in 1973.&nbsp;Patagonia, named by <em>Fortune</em> in 2007 as the coolest company on the planet, has earned a reputation as much for its ground-breaking environmental and social practices as for the quality of its clothes. In "The Responsible Company," Chouinard and Stanley recount how the company and its culture gained the confidence, by step and misstep, to make its work progressively more responsible, and to ultimately share its discoveries with companies as large as Wal-Mart or as small as the corner bakery.</p> Visiting Writers Series: Eileen Myles Thu, 17 Jan 2013 16:16:32 MST <p><em>Thursday, February 21, 2013 7:00 PM</em></p><p>Winner of the Poetry Society of America's Shelley Memorial Award, Myles has written many renowned volumes of poetry and fiction, including "Inferno," "Chelsea Girls," and "Cool for You<em>."</em></p> Cross-Currents Film Series presents: le Grand Voyage Tue, 12 Feb 2013 15:44:50 MST <p><em>Monday, February 25, 2013 4:00 PM</em></p><p></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><strong >Monday 25 February 2013</strong><strong ><em ></em></strong></p> <p class="MsoNormal" ><strong >Cross-Currents Film Series presents: <em >Le Grande Voyage</em></strong></p> <p class="MsoNormal" ><strong >Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Art Center </strong></p> <p class="MsoNormal" ><strong >Film Screening Room</strong></p> <p class="MsoNormal" ><strong >Free and open to the public</strong></p> <p class="MsoNormal" >Reda, a young French-Moroccan guy and his old father drive from the south of France to Mecca in order for the father to do his pilgrimage.
