From the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce:
Pandethics - How a Crisis Affects the Ethics of Business (and the Business of Ethics)
Friday, July 24th
9:00 am - 10:00 CST
In partnership with Vanderbilt Executive Education at the Owen Graduate School of Management, the Nashville Area Chamber is pleased to present a webinar on what Professor Barry called "Pandethics" - the intersection of ethics and decision making during a pandemic.
For many, ethics and morality are constants: basic values and senses of right and wrong that should not shift with winds of changing business conditions or social turbulence. For others, challenging times require moral flexibility – an openness to adjusting one’s ethics to cope with difficult and dynamic circumstances.
In this thought-provoking and engaging webinar, Professor Bruce Barry will catalyze conversation on questions like these:
- How are business and workplace ethics implicated in a crisis?
- How are those ethics implicated in the particular crisis (or should we say crises) of 2020?
- How do you think about your own personal and work ethics – do they diverge?
- How morally flexible should we be when circumstances change dramatically?
Bruce Barry is the Brownlee O. Currey Jr. Professor of Management at the Owen School at Vanderbilt. He teaches business ethics in Owen’s MBA program and has published widely on workplace ethics, rights, conflict, power, and justice. He is editor in chief of Business Ethics Quarterly, a premier international scholarly journal in the business ethics field.
Please note, pre-registration is required for this virtual event.
