"Taking a Stand-Or Just Grandstanding? How Should We Assess Activism by CEOs and Companies?" is the topic for the second installment of the John A. Berges Lecture Series in Business Ethics at 2 p.m. Oct. 23 (Friday) online. The lecture series is hosted by the Notre Dame Deloitte Center for Ethical Leadership at the Mendoza College of Business.

The Zoom lecture will feature Brandon Warmke, author of "Grandstanding: The Use and Abuse of Moral Talk" (Oxford UP, 2020) and Amanda G. McKendree, the Arthur F. and Mary J. O'Neil Director of the Fanning Center for Business Communication.  

They will look at recent activism by CEOs and companies and learn about a framework individuals and organizations can use to assess who is taking an authentic stand and who is grandstanding.

The event is free and open to the public via Zoom.
