Business, education collaborate on Institute for Business Ethics

Belhaven College and MMI Hotel Group/Dining Systems have joined forces to create an Institute for Business Ethics, a Jackson-area think tank designed to challenge leadership with ethical research, discussion and resources.

Training is a key element of the project, which begins Jan. 19 with a conference titled "Business Ethics and the Role of Senior Management."

Featured speakers will be retired Baylor University Ethics Department Chair Dr. Richard Chewning, currently a distinguished scholar in residence at John Brown University in Arkansas, and Dr. Bill Penn, Belhaven business professor.

Chewning has written six books and more than 90 articles on business ethics and spent more than 42 years in the college classroom.

Apart from the January conference, Belhaven is planning a series of executive summits, where 10 to 12 business decision-makers will meet to conceptualize agendas and tracks for seminars, written resources on best practices and more. The Institute will eventually name a steering committee and an advisory board.

For more information on the Institute for Business Ethics or on the January conference, call (601) 974-6456.
