Our featured speaker, psychologist Jonathan Haidt, will explore the moral psychology of business ethics and how companies can structure and run themselves in ways that will be resistant to ethical failures.

Dr. Haidt is the Thomas Cooley Professor of Ethical Leadership at the NYU-Stern School of Business. His research focuses on morality – its emotional foundations, cultural variations, and developmental course – which has resulted in his work in the field of positive psychology.
