Ryerson University Student Learning Centre (SLC)
Mary Gentile will share a ground-breaking new approach to preparing business managers and leaders for values-driven decision making. Drawing on both the actual experience of business practitioners as well as cutting edge research, Giving Voice to Values (GVV) fills a long-standing and critical gap in our understanding of how to enable ethical practice.
Rather than a focus on ethical analysis, GVV focuses on ethical implementation and asks the question: “What if I were going to act on my values? What would I say and do? How could I be most effective?”
Dr. Gentile will share particular examples of ethical challenges facing early career professionals.
GVV was launched by The Aspen Institute and Yale School of Management; supported at Babson College from 2009-15; and is now based at University of Virginia Darden School of Business where Gentile is Professor of Practice. Developed by Gentile, a veteran of Harvard Business School and pioneer in both ethics and diversity management curriculum, GVV has been piloted in over 1,010 educational and executive settings on all seven continents.
Giving Voice to Values holds the promise to transform the foundational assumptions upon which the teaching of business ethics is based, and importantly, to equip future business leaders to not only know what is right — but how to make it happen.
