Join this session of the Gerhart Center Webinar Series under the title "Honorable Business" featuring James R. Otteson, John T. Ryan Jr. professor of business ethics, and the Rex and Alice A. Martin faculty director, Notre Dame/Deloitte Center for Ethical Leadership.

Many people believe that business is morally suspicious activity, a suspicion reflected in the common belief that business people need to “give back” to society. Is the business an activity for which one must atone? Is it the case that one must have violated morality somewhere along the way if one is successful in business? In other words, are people right to be suspicious of business? This talk presents a conception of business—"honorable business"—that does not require atonement and calls on businesspeople to incorporate this conception of business into their professional identities.
