Colorado is home to many innovators, and great thinkers. It's one way we lead the nation. From meeting the needs of future business leaders, by instilling in them an ethical compass, to having our fingers on the launch button of modern day space craft, we in Colorado continue to stay ahead of the curve.
We're talking with Dr. Mark Meaney, Executive Director of the CU Leeds School of Business Center for Education on Social Responsibility. CESR incorporates business ethics into the curriculum, so that as students learn about running a business, they also understand how more delicate matters should be handled. The need for a focus on ethics and social responsibility stemmed from a change in federal regulations in 1992 which changed sentencing guidelines for organizations that violated the law. Now prosecutors could investigate an organization and determine who was responsible for the crime, where previously, an organization would get a "slap on a wrist" with no one person being held accountable.
Tune in to learn more about how ethics apply to business, and how it fits into the curriculum.
Then, stay with us for a conversation with Edgar Johansson, President of the Colorado Space Business Roundtable. We'll discuss the latest projects currently in space, and the upcoming Aerospace Day at the Capitol, March 23rd.
