Philosophy 2N03 Business Ethics - Dr. Jennifer Szende
Office: UH 302
Office Hours: Tuesday 10:30-11:30
Sheryl Sandberg
- Most recognizable person in empowering roles (female empowerment?)
- Has been sexually harassed but never by someone of immediate within her colleague
circle
- #MeToo movement building up
- Created a FB post that policies create opportunities for sexual harassment
Sandberg Quote:
- Clear about it being a workplace responsibility (rules of discipline)
- Sexual harassment does not consequently happen
- Business is a social structured institute where the rules of engagement are defined by
norms, thus the way you behave in business is according to a set of rules not given as
explicitly as the quote (rules)
- Rules are enforced, a convention (ex. Dress code) rules are come to an understanding
point between people
- Some rules may be more difficult to define what the rules of engagement are (internal
and external engagements/socialization)
- Time consuming to step back from a situation and explain the explicit rules, social
norms, checks and balances in a social sense
- Goal: building a business culture where rules are clear, where the culture and climate
are open as possible, rules are in place to govern when something is wrong
Chris MacDonald Quote:
- Chris has spoken about both people and institutions
- An idea in ethics and politics, people gather together to act as an institution but then
going onward to act as an individual
- Difficulty (dilemma) between acting as an individual (own behalf) or acting on behalf on
the corporation/institution
- Working to restructure the corporation to avoid the situation again (reference starbucks
situation)
