Visiting Lecturers: How to create sustainable organizations

September 22, 2014 — 

How do ethics, psychology and economics impact the creation of sustainable organizations? Two world-class scholars in business ethics will explore this question by drawing from their latest research in ethical impact theory, economic rationality and socio-economic reason over the course of two events.

Dr. Robert Giacalone is the Bill Daniels Chair in Business Ethics at the University of Denver. A recognized expert in business ethics, organizational behavior, and human resource management, he is the author of The Essence of Living, in which he shares ideas about living joyously, finding meaning, and focusing on a life that really matters.

Dr. Laszlo Zolnai is the Director of the Business Ethics Centre at Corvinus University of Budapest, and a leading European scholar in the ethical foundations of business, sustainable management and corporate social responsibility, business spirituality and Buddhist economics. In his latest book, Beyond Self: Ethical and Spiritual Dimensions of Economics, he shows how self-interest-based actions and policies have a detrimental impact on nature, future generations, and society at large.
