GIVING VOICE TO VALUES: The “How” of Business Ethics
Dr 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?”
GVV was launched by The Aspen Institute and Yale School of Management, and is now housed and funded by Babson College. Developed by Gentile, a veteran of Harvard Business School and pioneer in both ethics and diversity management curriculum, GVV has been piloted in over 660 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.
Professor Mary C. Gentile, PhD, is Director of Giving Voice to Values (GVV) at Babson College and Senior Advisor at Aspen Institute Business & Society Program. She is the creator of Giving Voice to Values, a pioneering business curriculum for values-driven leadership which has been featured in Financial Times, Harvard Business Review, Stanford Social Innovation Review, McKinsey Quarterly, etc. and piloted in over 650 business schools and organizations globally. Mary’s award-winning book, Giving Voice To Values: How To Speak Your Mind When You Know What’s Right (Yale University Press) has been widely acclaimed and adopted in many business school curricula.
Mary was Faculty member and manager of case research at Harvard Business School in 1985-1995, where she was one of the principal architects of the School’s Leadership, Ethics and Corporate Responsibility curriculum. She co-authored Can Ethics Be Taught? Perspectives, Challenges, and Approaches at Harvard Business School, and was Content Expert for the award-winning interactive CD-ROM, Managing Across Differences (Harvard Business School Publishing).
