CHESTNUT HILL, Mass., Mar. 17 /CSRwire/ - The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship has added two dynamic women to its roster of keynote speakers at the 2010 International Corporate Citizenship Conference in Boston, April 11-13.

Nadira Hira, an acclaimed writer and television personality, will talk about how to creatively engage Generation Y as important contributors to corporate culture and productivity, on racial and generational diversity, and the role of social networks in the modern workplace and in society in general. She wrote Fortune's widely discussed 2007 cover story on Gen Yers and their impact on corporate America. On television she has been a featured personality on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" and ABC's "America's Black Forum", a regular contributor to VH1's "The Fabulous Life" and BET's "Black Carpet", and an expert guest on many major outlets, including CNN, CBS, MSNBC, CNBC, and BBC-A.

Niloufar Molavi is the U.S. chief diversity officer at PricewaterhouseCoopers and will speak at the dinner opening the conference, Sunday, April 11. "Our commitment to diversity means doing what it takes so that all employees receive appropriate developmental opportunities, and that we eliminate any barriers (real or perceived) that could stand in the way of advancement," says Molavi. "We strive to be a high performing organization, and believe the only way we can be successful is to embrace all the perspectives and experiences that shape our professionals' point of view."

Working in the Houston office of PricewaterhouseCoopers, she is also a tax partner with more than 19 years of experience serving energy clients. Molavi has been a frequent speaker at the Texas Society of CPA Oil and Gas Conference, the Tax Executive Institute Tax School, American Petroleum Institute Tax Forum and the Houston chapter of CPAs tax seminar. She serves on the Accounting Advisory Board of the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas and the Board of Directors for Dress for Success Houston.

Hira's and Molavi's messages are just two more valuable elements of the 2010 International Corporate Citizenship Conference, which offers solutions to company's challenges through keynote speeches, breakout sessions and networking opportunities. These two women join a group of visionary voices as keynote speakers, who are bringing new ideas and perspectives to the table. This year's other keynote speakers are:
