Giving Voice To Values: The “How” of Business Ethics
October 31, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:15 pm
About the Program
Join the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity as we welcome Mary C. Gentile for the Fall 2017 HSBC Student Series on Ethics and Accountability. Dr. Gentile’s talk is entitled Giving Voice To Values: The “How” of Business Ethics.
Dr. Gentile will share a ground-breaking new approach to preparing business managers and leaders for values-driven decision making. Drawing on both the actual experience of business practitioners as well as cutting edge research, GIVING VOICE TO VALUES (GVV) fills a long-standing and critical gap in our understanding of how to enable ethical practice. Rather than a focus on ethical analysis, GVV focuses on ethical implementation and asks the question: “What if I were going to act on my values? What would I say and do? How could I be most effective?”
GVV was launched by The Aspen Institute and Yale School of Management, with interim support at Babson College, and is now based at University of Virginia Darden School of Business. Developed by Gentile, a veteran of Harvard Business School and pioneer in both ethics and diversity management curriculum, GVV is now being piloted in over 995 educational and executive settings. Giving Voice to Values holds the promise to transform the foundational assumptions upon which the teaching of business ethics is based, and importantly, to equip future business leaders to not only know what is right — but how to make it happen.
