2023 Fordham Women's Summit | Beyond Green: Investing in a More Sustainable World

On October 18, 2023, Fordham alumnae, parents, and friends gathered at Fordham Law School to hear how Fordham women, across many industries, are innovating and changing our world for the better—now and for future generations. The 2023 Fordham Women’s Summit’s theme, Beyond Green: Investing in a More Sustainable World, was inspired in part by the University’s Laudato Si’ Action Platform and was focused on sustainability and how, beyond climate change, we can all take bold, visionary action in our own lives.

Jeannette Ferran Astorga joined Zoetis in 2020 as the first head of sustainability and launched the company’s long-range environment and social impact goals. She also established and serves as president of the Zoetis Foundation.

She earned a bachelor of science degree in business from Fordham University and has completed the Harvard Business School executive program in corporate social responsibility.
