All Hallows welcomes business ethics specialist

All Hallows College in Dublin has welcomed Prof. Patricia Werhane as a Fulbright Specialist to the college from November 10-23, 2013.

 One of the founders of the contemporary field of business ethics, Prof. Werhane is  Wicklander Chair of Business Ethics and Managing Director of the Institute for Business and Professional Ethics at DePaul University.

A prolific author whose works include Moral Imagination and Management Decision-Making and Profitable Partnerships for Poverty Alleviation, Prof. Werhane is an acclaimed authority on employee rights in the workplace and has recently worked on a film series around social entrepreneurship called Big Questions.

 During her visit, Prof. Werhane plans to promote the importance of Business Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility, highlight its impact upon public life and society and establish modalities of work and organisation that consider social justice at its core rather than as an adjunct activity.
