Catholic University's Department of Business and Economics hosts a discussion on the Economy of Communion project.

Two Economy of Communion participants, John Mundell, founder and CEO of Mundell & Associates, an Indianapolis-based environmental services firm, and Nick Sanna, president and CEO of Netuitive, a Reston, Va.-based information technology firm, will talk about the history of the project and how it is being realized in their companies.

The Economy of Communion was launched in 1991 by Chiara Lubich, an Italian leader of a worldwide organization called the Focolare Movement, an international religious movement promoting unity and brotherhood. The Economy of Communion project represents an alternative economic and business model founded on a vision of interpersonal and social relationships that follow the social doctrine of the Catholic Church. There are currently more than 750 Economy of Communion businesses in 60 countries.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Andrew Abela, associate professor of marketing, at or 202-319-5235.
