Hosted by the Center for Education on Social Responsibility at Leeds School of Business
University of Colorado Boulder
Corporate leaders emphasize the importance of business ethics and integrity in the workplace. Yet they are concerned that business schools are not graduating students with the educational experiences necessary to recognize and address complex ethical situations when they arise.
For the first time at the Leeds School of Business, the Center for Education on Social Responsibility (CESR) will welcome deans and corporate executives from prestigious institutions and companies around the globe to brainstorm how to make ethically responsible business the norm, starting with educating future business leaders. The University of Colorado Boulder, in collaboration with the University of Illinois, Pennsylvania State University, and the University of Texas at Austin, is proud to announce that it will host the fourth Partners in Business Ethics Conference, to be held May 19 and 20, 2015 on CU Boulder's campus.
