When No One Is Watching

Sr. Susan Vickers, a member of the Institute of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, was ICCR’s board chair from 2011 to 2012. She retired recently from Dignity Health after 28 years of serving in a variety of roles. Most recently Susan served as Dignity’s VP of Corporate Responsibility, where she directed and oversaw system-wide corporate social responsibility and sustainability programs and directed Dignity Health’s shareholder initiatives to raise social responsibility issues with the management of companies in its investment portfolio.

“In her decades of shareholder advocacy ministry, Sr. Susan Vickers has led with a quiet, yet fierce determination to advocate for the greater good and a healthy environment for all. A pioneer in the field, she has championed issues before they were mainstream, and encouraged her health system and her religious community to be leaders in socially responsible investing. Her dedication to socially responsible investing will continue to guide and inspire the work of faith-based investors for years to come.”
