Giving voice to valuesOn the September 25th in the Malyi Hall of the Library of Foreign Literature IBLF, TI and CFBE host a meeting with the author of the book “Giving Voice to Values” Mary Gentile, PhD., Director and Senior Research Scholar, Babson College, USA. Registration is now open.
The meeting is free of charge, but seats are limited.
Despite the activities of the regulators bound to maintain civilized behaviour of people, the work of educators striving to instil ethical values in their students, the efforts of compliance managers and auditors, the number of reports on bribery, financial fraud and corporate scandals continues to grow. Company employees still avoid using the hot line to inform of unprincipled behaviour of their colleagues, while corporate codes of ethics gather dust on shelves.
This happens although various surveys show that the majority of people share the values of honesty, justice and freedom.
The gap between what people know and how they act is obvious. The creator of the Giving Voice to Values method and pedagogy, Mary Gentile, is building a bridge which helps to switch over from abstract debates about ethical principles to their practical implementation.
Her methodology suggests ways to acquire the skills of ethical behaviour and to overcome the challenges of double-bind or triple-standard situations where most of us tend to feel at a loss, being unable to decide what to do.
What should you do when you encounter unethical behaviour? That is the main question Mary Gentile will address and be solving together with you.
The presentation will be in English with Russian translation.
