Event description

Description

This two-day international conference brings together researchers from Canada, the US, Europe and Africa who study business, ethics, geography, labor, law, sociology and philosophy. Our aim is to rethink responsibility in business. What does responsibility in business mean today? How can we engage with responsibility to better prepare for the challenges of tomorrow, such as climate change, the digital age and widening inequalities? This conference seeks to encourage and outline answers to these and other questions by promoting conversations that consider agents, structures in which agents are embedded, and the ways in which agents and structures are linked.



This conference is generously supported by the RBC Professorship in Responsible Organizations, the Luc Beauregard Centre of Excellence in Communications Research, the Lawrence Bloomberg Research Chair, and the Concordia Accounting Research Seminar.
