Business Ethics in the World of Change: A Panel Discussion at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China
Through research, teaching, and program activity on the intersection of faith and work, we have observed the subject of faith and work is hardly limited to the United States. The question of how various religious traditions might shape and inform marketplace activities and business ethics is a global one. Prof. Miller will have the special opportunity to have conversations about and moderate a forum on business ethics at Tsinghua University, a leading Chinese university in Beijing. The forum will be comprised of leading Chinese scholars, corporate CEOs, as we seek to put rigorous academic thought into conversation with the practical marketplace realities of business leaders, and the perspectives of students.
Miller will be moderating a forum with Mark Hutchinson, CEO, GE China; David Snow, CEO, AstraZeneca China; and Dr. Qian Xiaojun, Professor at Tsinghua Economics & Management School.
The forum will focus on the increasing demand to reinforce business ethics among university students amidst exposures of corruption cases. Panelists will also share best practices for leading corporations that engender a culture of business ethics, corporate social responsibility, and sustainability.
Session 1: What is business ethics? Why is business ethics important to a company?
Session 2: What are the large companies doing to build business ethics? How do they navigate especially when something goes wrong? How does one embed ‘ethics’ in the company culture?
Session 3: Why shared responsibility is important: The role of different stakeholders, business, consumers, students in building and sustaining business ethics.
