Guest Speaker Dr. Mary C. Gentile
Giving Voice to Values: The “How” of Business Ethics
Wednesday, September 27, 2017 | 5:00 – 6:30 pm
University of Colorado Denver
1380 Lawrence Street, 2nd Floor Terrace Room
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?”
