The 11th annual Assumption College Business Ethics Lecture will be held at 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, in La Maison Française Salon.
This year’s lecture will feature former White House climate change official William J. Antholis, Ph.D., now managing director of the prestigious Brookings Institution. He will discuss "Ethics and Politics in India and China: From Local Self-Government to Global Sustainability."
The lecture is based on research Dr. Antholis conducted for his book Inside Out India and China: Local Politics Go Global. He spent five months in India and China, travelling to more than 20 states and provinces in both countries, exploring the enormous diversity in business, governance and culture of these nations.
Climate change, international trade, global poverty and nuclear energy are key issues of our time and topics of frequent and polarizing debate in Washington, D.C. and in academia. As such, the Assumption College MBA Program and Department of Business Studies are pleased to provide this opportunity for the community to hear an expert on the ethical underpinnings of global diplomacy discuss topics as wide-ranging as environmental sustainability, nuclear energy, nuclear weapons and income inequality.
