KING OF PRUSSIA, PA--(Marketwire - Nov 9, 2011) -

Ci&T, a technology outsourcing and software product engineering company, today announced that Leonardo Mattiazzi, vice president of international business for Ci&T, will participate in a panel discussion on the topic of ethical consumerism as part of the Temple University Fox School of Business 4th Annual Conference.

In a new world where business extends past geographic borders, many companies have made a pledge to conduct business ethically. These companies must be increasingly vigilant to ensure that the products they are purchasing are being produced in adherence to ethical standards, a task that can be especially difficult when doing business in emerging markets. During the discussion, Mattiazzi and participants from the Fox School of Business, Cognizant and Federal Express will discuss how their own organizations have been impacted by ethical consumerism, the challenges that can be faced when working in a global environment and the feasibility of ethical consumerism to drive revenue.

Leonardo Mattiazzi is the vice president of international business at Ci&T, a global IT services company headquartered in Campinas, Brazil. Drawing on firsthand experience with clients all over the globe, Leonardo is an innovative leader, advancing the practice of Lean principles in IT, particularly in nearshore outsourcing. He blogs regularly about Nearshore Development for industry outlets that include Nearshore Americas and IDG Connect.

The Fox Conference will take place on Friday, Nov. 11, 2011, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Temple University, Alter Hall, 1801 Liacouras Walk, Philadelphia, PA.
