We often view our ethical decisions as constraints on action - a set of "thou shalt nots". What if we instead looked at these choices as the opportunities to be more of who we already are, at our best?
In a free public lecture at The University of Western Australia next week, Mary C. Gentile, Director of the ‘Giving Voice to Values' (GVV) business curriculum will discuss the insights of her research into leadership and ethical decision making.
The GVV curriculum is concerned with the implementation of ethical decision making, encouraging practitioners to ask themselves: What would I say and do if I were going to act on my values?
Mary Gentile is a Senior Research Scholar at Babson College, Senior Advisor, Aspen Institute Business & Society Program, and independent consultant. She is the author of numerous books and articles, including Giving Voice to Values: How to Speak Your Mind When You Know What's Right, (Yale University Press, 2010).
This lecture is a part of the Institute of Advanced Studies 2012 lecture series ‘Global Transformation and Public Ethics'. This series of free public lectures aims to stimulate considered debate about urgent issues in public ethics and policy as well as reflecting on ways we can improve public discourse about such issues.
