Boeing has teamed up with Ethiopian Airlines and Seattle Anesthesia Outreach to deliver 20,000 pounds of medical supplies to Ethiopian’s Black Lion Hospital, the country’s largest. The delivery was made using the airlines’ 787 Dreamliner, marking the first time the new plane has been used as part of Boeing’s Humanitarian Delivery Flights program.

McGill University’s Institute for the Study of International Development and the law firm of Fasken Martineau have teamed up to launch a new Executive Education Certificate Program in Corporate Social Responsibility. The five-day intensive program, focused on creating value through collaborative sustainable development, will be held at McGill’s downtown Toronto campus during the second week in November.

A new survey finds that 55 percent of U.S. women veteran business owners said their leadership experience in the military inspired them to start their own business. Forty-six percent said that being an owner has helped them transition to civilian life. The survey was conducted by Count Me In for Women’s Economic Independence, a nonprofit, and Capital One Financial.
