My name is Arthi Yerramilli and I am a junior in the Business School studying supply chain management minoring in psychology. I have been on staff since my freshman year and this will be my third RUMUN and 6th conference on staff. To me, IDIA is an excellent place where students of various backgrounds and skill sets can come together and engage in a unique learning experience and develop into leaders and problem solvers. This will be my second time directing, and I hope this committee provides a unique learning experience for everyone. As a first time advanced committee director, I hope to take the small committee setting and use it to show you all how business strategy can positively benefit their business, stakeholders, and the general population, while maintaining ethical standards and incorporating what it means to be socially responsible. Outside of IDIA, I am involved in the business governing association, teaches a business first- year seminar, and I enjoy singing and having adventures.
In the 21st World Petroleum Congress, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the oil industry will be examined from the standpoint of risk management, human rights, anti-corruption and transparency, and environmental sustainability. While not limited to these four points, students will examine and discuss these aspects as they pertain to benefiting the global population as energy demands and the population increase. Students will look at past examples and case studies and propose ways to be transparent and ethical while maintaining a competitive advantage, an issue that has remained controversial for many years.
See you in November!
