“The Secret Life of World Changers”

Tuesday, March 19th at 2:00 pm

Dr. Wheaton will provide insight into living the dynamic life of a world changer and how combining fields of expertise can turn chaos into social change.

A Q&A moderated by Dean Christensen of the Lyle School will follow her talk.


Although she holds titles ranging from economist to professor to CEO, Dr. Beth Wheaton is most vocal about the fact that you don’t need a title, unlimited time or abundant money to change the world. Her greatest commitment in life is working with students, community members, colleagues and friends to put their unique talents and varied interests into action to create cataclysmic social change. Beth holds an M.A. and Ph.D. in Economics from Temple University, and an M.S. in International Business and Trade from Grambling State University. She is an Economics Senior Lecturer at Southern Methodist University, and the Founder and CEO of Equip the Saints, a non-profit consultancy that works to strengthen nonprofit organizations worldwide and to equip world changers to fulfill their personal missions. Beth is a researcher on the subjects of child labor, the economics of human trafficking, the economics of capital punishment and the economics of border security.
