Principles and Profits: Ethics In The 21st Century

19 July 2019

Dr Julian Lamont from our School, along with Dr Mark Hutchinson (UQ Business School Executive-in-Residence, and former President and Chief Executive Officer of GE Europe) and Karen Chester (UQ Alumna and Deputy Chair, Australian Securities and Investments Commission) will be presenting at the Upcoming UQ Global Leadership Series Seminar entitled:

Principles and Profits: Ethics In The 21st Century

Ethics is at the heart of every contemporary social crisis, whether we realise it or not. From the Financial Services Royal Commission, to the use of technology, to the treatment of vulnerable people, ethical frameworks have unfortunately been manipulated, cherry-picked and at times abandoned to justify unethical actions.

How do individuals, organisations, and society maintain and implement a consistent ethical mindset?  What happens when what's ethical comes up against what's profitable?  The answers that people and societies choose have defined politics, economics and societies for millennia.

With expertise from business, philosophy and law, UQ's esteemed alumni and academics will confront these questions and more to chart a path forward for Australia and beyond.
