Can companies have ethics? Is it possible to be guided by morals and driven by profit?
These are age-old questions that are often debated in the business world.
The issue of ethics in business has also taken on new urgency in our current time, defined by rampant inequality and the survivalist mentality brought about by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Rob Chesnut, currently AirBnB’s Chief Ethics Officer and former General Council, is an expert on the topic of ethics in business.
Rob will be hosting a Q&A on Fishbowl on Tuesday, May 5 to answer these questions and help kick-start an ongoing discussion on the topic.
