The Peter P. Dhillon Centre for Business Ethics is accepting applications for participation in the 8th Annual Milgard Invitational Case Competition on Social Responsibility. Four business students will represent UBC Sauder at the international competition in Seattle on March 1, 2019. Applications from individuals or teams will be accepted until Wednesday, January 9, 2019.
There was no shortage of responsible business issues in the news during 2018 and the Dhillon Centre for Business Ethics at UBC Sauder had opportunities to share its expertise and insights on topics as diverse as ethical investing, pro-social consumer behaviour, the implications of the #metoo movement for business, and obligations of companies to stakeholders.
According to a new study from the UBC Sauder School of Business, increasing the size of women’s washrooms and adding unisex washroom options can contribute to increased gender equity, customer satisfaction and sales volume in business facilities.
In this Q&A, we talk to Dr. Chris Rowell, a lecturer in Organizational Behavior at the Sauder School of Business, who is currently researching the emergence of the global blockchain field, and discuss an interesting phenomenon his work in the field has identified: the regulatory “trilemma” faced by companies that want to raise funds via initial coin offerings (ICOs).
