The Vocation Of the Business Leader
We cordially invite you to join us for a conference on the purpose and meaning of business leadership in a multi-faith society. We will integrate perspectives from religiously and spiritually guided business leaders, religious leaders, and academics.
Business leaders will discuss how faith and humanistic traditions influence and sustain ethical business practices.
Leading scholars will present cutting-edge research on business leadership, vocation, spirituality, ethics, and professionalism.
You will be able to engage speakers and material and interactive breakout sessions.
We will provide space for contemplative sessions, silent reflection, prayer, and meditation to deepen the insights arising from the conference.
We welcome people from all sectors and levels of experience. You will learn about real cases and the challenging, but rewarding work of leading business by these values. You will be able to network with others as you develop new ways to guide business in ways that create a more sustainable, just, and humane world.
The Inspiration for our Conference
The Vocation of the Business Leader, a recently issued document by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, inspires our conference. It argues that successful and competitive businesses require decision-making based on human dignity, the common good, and environmental health. The document gives practical suggestions for day-to-day decision-making. Two of our speakers, Prof. Michael Naughton and Prof. Kenneth Goodpaster, were integrally involved in writing this document.
The conference will close with a celebratory mass held in the Chapel of St. Ignatius on the Seattle University campus. We welcome people of all faiths and humanist traditions.
