The Dundon-Berchtold Institute is facilitating and hosting Ethics Week from Sunday, February 19, through Friday, February 24. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to participate in discussions of ethics as they relate to the curriculum, course content, history, and day-to-day life. The following two opportunities to engage with powerful stories are free and open to the public:
- Ethics Week Keynote Address: Martin Daum, President and CEO of Daimler Trucks North America, Monday, February 20, 7:15 p.m., Buckley Center Auditorium. Daum will share insights into the ethical principles and challenges that guide his work with emerging technologies, making decisions with multiple stakeholders in mind, and the importance of ethics in framing his journey as a husband, father, and businessman.
- Ethics Week Talk: Linda Biehl on Reconciliation and Restorative Justice, Tuesday, February 21, 7:15 p.m., Bauccio Commons. In August of 1993, Fulbright scholar Amy Biehl was stabbed and stoned to death by an angry mob in the township of Gugulethu, South Africa. Two men who were convicted of Amy’s murder and served time in prison now work for the foundation established in her name. Linda Biehl, Amy’s mother, will share this remarkable story.
