Does Lisa Jackson Support Divestment at Tulane University?


An audience member asks Lisa Jackson, VP of Environmental Initiatives at Apple, if she would support her alma mater, Tulane University, divesting from fossil fuels. "I went to Tulane University on a Shell Oil Company scholarship. So I don't believe in being a hypocrite and I don't believe in standing up and saying something that's easy and popular," said Jackson. "If Tulane University or any university is going to start to make those decisions based on values and certainly you've heard from me that climate to me is the most important value, not for everyone, I think I need to understand fully what that means for that university."
