Webinar: Ethics in Global Commerce during Coronavirus

Patricia Werhane shares information on the global ethical dilemmas faced during the coronavirus outbreak and how to make these difficult decisions. Most of us identify with our local culture and government, despite the global interdependence of today’s commerce. The rapid spread of the coronavirus disease has created opportunities and challenges locally and globally as we quarantine ourselves locally while still dependent on global imports and supply chains for goods and services. These contrasting views lead to serious ethical issues for those engaged in global commerce. How we should approach these dilemmas through a values-based decision-making process will be the topic of this webinar. The webinar will (1) begin with an outline of the ethical dilemmas facing global commerce in light of the pandemic, (2) tackle the “local identify versus the interconnectivity and dependence on global commerce” issue, and (3) explain and set out a values-based decision process for making difficult ethical choices in crises such as this global pandemic.

“The rapid spread of the coronavirus has created opportunities and challenges locally and globally as we quarantine ourselves locally while still dependent on global imports and supply chains for goods and services. These contrasting views lead to serious ethical issues for all of us and in particular, those engaged in global commerce." – Patricia Werhane
