With representatives from Yale, Monterrey Tech, Environmental Resources Management and Solvay, Gerber participated in a panel cultivating talent and leadership between academic and industry sectors. There was tremendous enthusiasm among the approximately 50 participants, who have aspirations for collaborative online learning platforms. A post-event website was created by WBCSD including videos and program updates.
