Carey Faculty Members EARN Honor for Article on Livable Cities in the 21st Century
In their paper, Milter and Thompson argue that as populations worldwide increasingly gather in urban areas, “the creation of livable cities for the [21st century] is an opportunity for business to demonstrate a new ethos of social responsibility, but to do this will require a fundamental rethinking of wealth, the structural dynamics of wealth creation, the role of business in society, and the locus of wealth creation. … Business will need to position itself among other urban stakeholders in building expectations, practices, and partnerships of shared values, responsibility, and value creation.”
Milter is a professor in the practice track with expertise in management education and collaborative learning. Thompson is an associate professor in the practice track and specializes in the role of character and human values in business, society, and corporate culture.
The conference was held October 25-27, 2018, in New York, and hosted by the Center for Global Business Stewardship at the Peter J. Tobin College of Business, St. John’s University, DePaul University, and Niagara University. Its theme was “People, Planet, Progress: Business Ethics for a Global Society.”
In addition to presentations of academic research, the conference included keynote addresses by United Nations officials and business leaders. It was attended by nearly 200 people representing 25 countries and 87 universities.
