The conference provides opportunities to acquire information on current and evolving research projects, obtain new resources for ethics education, learn best practices for professional and corporate ethics programs, and engage in thoughtful discussion on a plethora of ethics topics.
There are five Thursday pre-conference experiences: Ethics Center Directors Summit; APPE RISEsm Pre-Conference Symposium; Teaching Ethics with Constructive Dialogue; Graduate and Early Career Scholar Seminar on Teaching Ethics; and Practicing Two-Eyed Seeing: Ethics and Ecology along the Willamette River.
Thirty-six student teams from institutions of higher learning across the country will compete in matches using a set of prepared cases that are drawn from real-life examples in education, business, life, and politics. Nearly 150 teams from more than 100 schools competed in regional competitions this fall to earn a berth to the national competition.
While free speech and democracy issues have also been at the forefront, in recent decades the business and human rights movement has been largely preoccupied with the sweatshop problem of worker abuse and exploitation in the global south. The development of new digital technologies such as artificial intelligence and the social media surveillance state have given rise to a host of new human rights concerns that affect wealthy countries as well as countries in the global south. Professor Santoro will summarize some of the most important of these technical developments, the human rights concerns they raise, and the responses to these challenges from various state, national, and international regulatory bodies. He will conclude by inviting the audience to consider what the future holds in store for human rights in the coming decades.
Michael A. Santoro is a pioneering scholar, teacher, and consultant in the field of business ethics and human rights.
As housing becomes increasingly unaffordable for large segments of the population, homelessness has grown more visible and widespread in many communities. A panel of local community experts will examine homelessness and the complex ethical issues it raises for those who work with the unhoused.
Moderator: Jacen Greene, Assistant Director, Homelessness Research & Action Collaborative, Portland State University
