In 1995, Aaron Feuerstein's 96-year-old family company, Malden Mills, was ravaged by fire. His decision to rebuild the Lawrence, Massachusetts plant while paying his 3,000 workers their wages and benefits turned him into a role model for corporate responsibility. “I consider our workers an asset, not an expense,” Feuerstein has said. Malden Mills sought bankruptcy protection in 2001, eventually emerging from insolvency in 2003. At the time of this lecture, Feuerstein was trying to buy back control of Malden Mills.

Mer Zovko, assistant dean for student development, introduces Feuerstein.
