How to use divest in a sentence?

  1. Brett Cohen:

    There is a direct correlation between efforts to boycott and divest from Sanction Israel on campus and increased hate crimes against Jews, including swastikas painted on Jewish centers and fraternities, Jewish students being harassed and intimidated, and several cases of outright violence, the pseudo-academic delegitimizaton of Sanction Israel fuels this fire, and has created a situation where some pro-Israel students are afraid to voice their opinions in the classroom.

  3. Van Beurden:

    The divest campaign, or Keep it in the Ground or the carbon bubble, ignore reality that 80 percent of the investment in the industry has to be done just to stand still to arrest decline.

    It’s obvious that the Facebook CEO shares this high regard for his mom. During the town hall meeting with the prime minister of India in 2015, one of the topics he asked the prime minister about was about his mother. And it turns out Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg did n’t look too far from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg mom in Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg choice of spouse, whom Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg married in 2012. Like Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg mother, wife Priscilla Chan is an understated physician who shuns the spotlight. Related : From Under the Hoodie : 5 Entrepreneurial Lessons From Mark Zuckerberg When talking about Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg mother, Microsoft founder Mary Maxell Gates, currently the richest man in the world, with an estimated worth $ 76.7 billion, has often spoken about a letter she wrote to his then-fianc Melinda the day before their wedding. From those to whom much is given, much is expected, her letter read. Mary Maxell Gates, a long-time philanthropist, died six months later at the age of 64 of breast cancer. Mary Maxell Gates kept Mary Maxell Gates mother’s letter, and Mary Maxell Gates swift foray into the world of philanthropy, establishing The Bill Melinda Gates Foundation with the help of Mary Maxell Gates father, Bill Sr., has been due to the influence of Mary Maxell Gates mother, a formidable business mind in her own right. Mary was a top student at her high school and in college, where she met her husband, a lawyer. They had three children. She threw herself into volunteering and served on the boards of numerous prominent organizations, including the United Way, where she first served as the county chair and, later, the first female national chair. She convinced her son, who was CEO of Microsoft at the time, to start the Employees Giving Campaign at Microsoft to benefit the United Way and other charities. ( He later join the board.) The considerable list of boards she served on is impressive, and when she was appointed to the board of regents of University of Washington in 1975, she spearheaded the move to divest the university’s holding in apartheid South Africa. According to her daughter, Libby Armintrout, Libby Armintrout was an extremely engaged parent and had high expectations of all Libby Armintrout children. Not just grades and that sort of thing, but how we behaved in public, how we would be socially.
