About the Program
Join the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity via ZOOM as we welcome back Mary C. Gentile. Dr. Gentile’s talk is entitled Giving Voice To Values.
Educator Mary Gentile empowers business leaders with the skills to voice and act on their values, and align their professional path with their principles. Her book, Giving Voice to Values, is inspired by a curriculum Gentile launched at the Aspen Institute with Yale School of Management, with interim support from Babson College and now based at University of Virginia Darden School of Business and which has been piloted in over 1,020 schools and organizations on all seven continents.
Challenging the assumptions about business ethics at companies and business schools, she argues that often the issue isn’t distinguishing what is right or wrong, but knowing how to act on your values despite opposing pressure. Drawing on actual business experiences as well as social science research, Gentile will offer advice, practical exercises, and scripts for handling a wide range of ethical dilemmas.
