The Ethics Recession

Ethics BooksMark your calendars for an important leadership event on Friday, May 7. The Center for Ethics and Corporate Responsibility in the J. Mack Robinson College of Business is hosting a Leading with Integrity luncheon with renowned ethicist and journalist Rushworth M. Kidder.

Dr. Kidder, president of the Institute for Global Ethics, will discuss the state of ethics in U.S. society and in our corporations. He will trace the collapse of integrity, the abandonment of responsibility, and the failures of moral courage that underlie some of today’s financial numbers and offer his thoughts on what we can do to restore integrity and responsibility.

The luncheon is open to the public and all GSU faculty, staff and students.  It is scheduled for 11:30 am to 1:00 pm and will be held at The Commerce Club, 34 Broad Street, Atlanta, GA 30303.  Register online at The Center for Ethics and Corporate Responsibility web site.
