Join the Napa Institute and The Busch School of Business at The Catholic University of America for the 2020 Principled Entrepreneurship™ Conference as we explore the topic of Ethical Management and Faith in an Era of Woke Capitalism. Keynotes include Paul Singer, Dr. James Otteson, Dr. Andrew Abela, Stephen Auth, Msgr. Martin Schlag, J.D., S.T.D, Bill Mumma, Dr. Vincent Phillip Muñoz and more!
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. How should Catholic business leaders navigate this complex situation?
This conference will give the latest insights 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 as 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 you virtually. More information regarding speakers and schedule will be available in the upcoming weeks.
