Hurst also applied this concept to other sectors, including pharmaceuticals, to establish meaningful industry partnerships such as the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Initiative (PSCI). Hurst worked with GE’s corporate citizenship team for eight years as well as Hyatt’s executive team to build their first CSR platform.

Prior to BSR, Hurst worked in Silicon Valley as Executive Director of the public-private venture OpenVoice and as a Manager of Corporate Affairs for the Children’s Health Council.
