New Carnegie Council Podcast Series - Impact: Where Business and Ethics Meet

Apr 28, 2014

Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs announces "Impact," a new audio podcast series on ethics and business. Access it on Carnegie Council’s website or subscribe to Carnegie Council podcasts on iTunes or RSS feed. "As companies get more involved in all global affairs, they struggle to behave in ways that are both profitable and values-based," says series host Julia Taylor Kennedy. She will examine the evolution of global business and the related ethical questions, allowing listeners from all sectors to make purposeful global business decisions, whether as CEOs, employees, scholars, consumers, or advocates. Here are the first three podcasts. Watch for the next one in a few weeks! Scrambling to Adapt to Climate Change For years, climate change activists avoided "adaptive" solutions because they thought it was admitting defeat. But with the reality of extreme weather and resource shortages, even the UN is calling for this strategy. This episode explores whether this increased focus on adaptation is equitable, and whether it distracts from mitigation efforts. Blueprint or Scramble? Climate change is impacting the globe in surprising ways. The Maldives might be submerged, but Canadian trade could benefit from new waterways. What's the best way forward--short-term responses or long-term solutions? Blowing the Whistle Has the perception of whistleblowers changed? With high-profile cases like Edward Snowden and increased protections for those who accuse their employers of misconduct, have we moved away from the view that it "takes a rogue to catch a rogue"? Tobacco industry whistleblower Jeffrey Wigand and others discuss blowing the whistle in the U.S. Julia Taylor Kennedy is a writer, researcher, and producer who designs, builds, and manages programs for a variety of organizations, with a focus on big ideas for social good. A seasoned radio producer and interviewer, her previous work with Carnegie Council includes producing and voicing the business ethics podcast "Just Business" and creating and hosting "Ethics Matter," a televised series featuring major global thinkers. Founded by Andrew Carnegie in 1914, Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs is an educational, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that produces lectures, publications, and multimedia materials on the ethical challenges of living in a globalized world.
