About the Event

After initially claiming that it was not their 'business' to be ethically responsible, corporations seem to be striving to uphold ethical and moral values. Where huge private equity firms and hedge funds used to hold increasing profits as their main focus, via outsourcing, layoffs, and sweatshops, there seems to be a growing trend toward R&D, upholding a strong firm reputation, and the future of the company and community.

Is this to be taken as a sign that corporate America is becoming increasingly humane, or rather appropriating moral credibility instead of earning it? Join in the conversation with a specialist in business ethics and international business, Fr. Frank LaRocca.
