Since 1983 Marcy Murninghan has worked on the integration of civic moral values into corporate and capital decision making as a scholar, author, educator and entrepreneur. Her current focus is on cultivating the concept of "civic fiduciary" duty, a set of higher standards and expectations for tax-exempt institutional investors. In the mid-70s, while a Harvard doctoral student, she worked with Rosabeth Moss Kanter on building opportunities for women in corporations. She then shifted to a public bureaucratic setting, working for the newly-appointed superintendent of the Boston Public Schools during its implementation of court-ordered desegregation, which she helped design and about which she wrote for her doctoral thesis. She then worked with and wrote about themes connected to civic virtue, capital markets and institutional accountability, covering South Africa-related investment and divestment for major corporations, institutional investors and legislative bodies. Dr. Murninghan is also co-founder and editor of The Murninghan Post (2010) blog and founding president of The Lighthouse Investment Group (1987), which provides consulting and analysis on values-based fiduciary duty, stewardship and corporate responsibility. She has served on the Advisory Council and the Steering Committee/Educational Review Committee of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and has provided strategic policy and program advice to SASB; Harvard's Kennedy School Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative; Harvard Law School's Islamic Finance Project; the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI); Ceres; the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR); KLD Research & Analytics; the Council on Foundations; the Ford Foundation; The Boston Foundation and the New York State Comptroller. Dr. Murninghan also has taught courses and held fellowships at Harvard Divinity School, Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Tufts University and Babson College. In addition to post-doctoral work at HDS on values, the economy, and public life, she holds a doctorate from Harvard (education, law, public policy, organizational behavior); a master's degree from Antioch University (management); and a bachelor's degree from Albion College (religion).
