Better Angels: Morality and Meaning in the Post-Pandemic Society

Session Spotlight: America is emerging from the pandemic as a nation changed in fundamental ways, according to longitudinal weekly surveys from The Harris Poll. Harris data reveals that amidst the turbulence of 2020, public opinion has shifted on a range of issues from social values and voter priorities to expectations of business and leadership. And underscoring all these changes is the theme of morality as demands sound for a more equitable and just society. In a landscape scarred by loss, division, hatred, and inequality, there’s a larger role that business can play in creating a more prosperous and just society. This video is a small clip from the full session at Ethisphere’s 2021 Global Ethics Summit event.

The 2021 Global Ethics Summit was Ethisphere’s flagship event and the premier place for companies and delegates to learn, develop, and share ideas that elevate the field of business ethics and compliance. This year’s Summit showcased more companies and featured additional points of view while bringing together a larger community of leaders. This Summit also provided attendees, faculty, and sponsors with close to 40 different sessions, inclusive of plenary, breakout, and select company showcases.
