Come to a two part series on this vexing question. Most people profess themselves to be ethical. The problem arises when we think the “other guy” is not. But what constitutes ethical behaviour in one society will be seen quite differently in another. So what ethical standards should we expect from different cultures? On 20th October, an eminent panel will consider ethics globally - differences and similarities. This will set the scene for a second panel which will take place on December 2nd to discuss ethics in a business setting. What ethical issues do we face? Can we afford to live by the standards we set ourselves? Can we afford not to? Is there a compromise? Content: Theoretical prelude to Ethics. Discussion on what ethics really mean. How different groups (whether by nationality, religion or geography) see ethics to be? And are there any similarities that are common for every human being all around the world? Including speakers: - Zuzana Křečková, Lecturer of University of Economics - Jana Ryšlinková, Dean of US Business school - Jeffrey Gedmin, President of Radio Free Europe/ Radio Liberty - Jaroslav Kalous, Lecturer of Charles University Moderator: - Jan Valdinger, Managing Partner of Change Partnership Format: Panel Discussion 20 min long presentation of each speaker, each followed by short 5 min long Q&A section followed by a full Q&A session with panel discussion
