This week Yvette Torres-Rahman, Partnerships Director at Business Fights Poverty, interviews Tim Fort, Eveleigh Professor of Business Ethics, Kelley School of Business, Indiana University.
This interview sets the scene for a new Challenge being run by Business Fights Poverty and Indiana University on Business and Peace. The Challenge focuses on the question: What role can business play in pursuit of peace?
The Challenge consists of a one-month online programme of written articles and online discussions. Content will be drawn from Indiana University’s new publication on the topic, as well as from members of the Business Fights Poverty network.
The Challenge will focus on three themes
Week of 10 October: Why business might contribute to peace. Alongside a series of articles, an online discussion will take place on Wednesday 12 October, 10am ET/3pm UK. Click here to join the discussion.
Week of 17 October: Practical examples and lessons from business contributions to peace. Alongside a series of articles, an online discussion will take place on Wednesday 19 October, 10am ET/3pm UK. Click here to join the discussion.
Week of 24 October: How one might empirically assess business actions and how such quantification might be valuable for businesses and society alike. Alongside a series of articles, an online discussion will take place on Wednesday 26 October, 10am ET/3pm UK. Click here to join the discussion.
