Trey Sutton’s Biography

Trey is an Assistant Professor of Management in the Robins School of Business at the University of Richmond. His research investigates non-market strategy, which addresses the interactions between companies, government, and social movements. Trey became vegan about 7 years ago after learning more about the ethical problems related to meat, dairy, and egg production. Before becoming vegan, Trey was an avid hunter and angler.

Talk Description

A number of factors make it difficult to discuss important issues with people from different political ideologies. We need to bridge this divide if we hope to spread information about veganism and other issues beyond our own in-groups. In that vein, Trey is going to talk about how we can have productive conversations with people who may not show an interest in the animal, health, or environmental arguments related to veganism.

Please bring a vegan dish to share, your own place setting and beverage.
