Ethics Week 2017, March 20-25

Ethics Week includes discussion within classes of ethics-related issues associated with the subject of the course; student-oriented workshops; outside speakers invited to speak in classes; public events with outside speakers; and the awarding of the winners of the Abraham J. Briloff Prizes in Ethics.

 

MONDAY, MARCH 20

Public Event:  Business and Religious Accommodations: Legal and Ethical Issues

151 E. 25th Street (Newman Conference Center), Room 750

·         12:35pm – Debate and Panel Discussion

·         1:55pm – Lunch served

This event will address the legal and ethical implications of the conflict between reproductive and gay rights, on the one hand, and religious freedom, on the other, as it plays out in the commercial world. First, we will host a debate between Gregory Baylor, Senior Counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, and Gregory Lipper, Partner, Clinton Brook & Peed; former Senior Litigation Counsel, Americans United for Separation of Church and State. We will then hear a panel of academics and practitioners who will dig more deeply into the issues that arise when the newfound protections for gay rights collide with the reemerging movement for religious liberty.

Co-sponsored by The Carol and Lawrence Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research at Wharton and The Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity at Baruch.

RSVP is required via pre-registration. To pre-register: online; call 646-312-3231; or e-mail Matthew.LePere@baruch.cuny.edu.

Announcement of the Abraham J. Briloff Prizes in Ethics for 2016

The Abraham J. Briloff Prizes in Ethics are funded by a generous gift from alumnus Charles R. Dreifus (’66, MBA ’73) in honor of the late Abraham J. Briloff, Emanuel Saxe Distinguished Professor of Accountancy Emeritus. The emphasis of the Briloff prizes is ethics in professional life; to wit, ethics in the broadest sense. Recent writings on current ethical issues in a wide range of formats—such as books, articles, essays, op-ed pieces, and websites—were eligible for the prizes this year, as were pieces written or published for traditional scholarly settings. The faculty and student winners for 2016 will be announced on March 22; additional information about the prizes, a list of previous winners, and links to many of the prize-winning works may be found at http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/facultyhandbook/BriloffPrizes.htm.
