Iconic Voices: Richard Adkerson

“The World of the Global CEO”

Thursday, March 19, 2015 - 7:00pm

Join Cronkite Professor of Practice Jeff Cunningham as he interviews Richard Adkerson, CEO of Freeport-McMoRan, one of the world's largest producers of copper and gold.

Adkerson will discuss the challenges of running a global company in some of the most controversial and remote regions of the world, as well as here in Arizona at Freeport’s headquarters next door to the ASU Downtown Phoenix campus. The discussion will also touch upon the torrent of media attention and political activism that accompany development in areas with indigenous populations. He will explain what Freeport is doing to help those communities and his personal commitment to improving education, diversity and environmental conditions.
