Conference Details 

The problem: for decades, scholars, Church leaders, and others have been asking businesses to be more ethical. Suddenly – almost overnight, it seems – companies are keen to show their consciences, and concerns about Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues. This conference will give insights into these issues and how should people of faith should navigate this complex situation from the perspective of the business leader.


This conference will give the latest insights into these questions from the perspective of the Catholic faith, addressing questions such as:
• What is Woke capitalism, and what does it have to do with ethical management? Is it sincere, or just posturing?
• How should controversial issues (such life and gender issues) be addressed?
• What role can faith play in management?


The Napa Institute and The Catholic University of America are excited to bring this conference to the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel, October 13th-15th with an opening dinner on October 12th. Benefit from opportunities for prayer, networking, and fellowship. More information regarding speakers and schedule will be available in the upcoming weeks.
