Global Work lecture series features former energy executive Sept. 27

John. P. Colton, a former energy executive in both private and public sectors, will speak at Brigham Young University on “The Environmental Impact of a Profession” Tuesday, Sept. 27, at 7:30 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

This is the first lecture in the Global Work series sponsored by the International Society to explore the challenges and achievements of Latter-day Saint professionals with global experience and expertise.

“The professions chosen today will direct the world tomorrow," said Colton, who, although retired, remains involved in energy-related activities as a member of Gov. Jon Huntsman’s energy council.

As a United Nations and U.S. State Department employee, he has worked with engineers, scientists, and diplomats in 120 countries. At the State Department, he worked with the International Atomic Energy Agency, U.S. Atomic Energy Agency, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency.

Throughout the GlobalWork series, students will meet with members of the International Society who have careers in development, law, business, diplomacy, education and media. Refreshments will be served. For more information on the International Society, visit www.ldsinternationalsociety.org.
