VIRTUAL CONFERENCE THEME: Ethical Implications for Business and Society of a
Post-COVID Recovery: Challenges, Opportunities and Impact 

October 20-22, 2022 - Virtual Event 


Hosted by St. John's University & the Center for Global Business
Stewardship, and co-sponsored by: DePaul University, Niagara University and
Dublin City University 

With the prospect of a post-pandemic recovery, questions are emerging around
how we shape that recovery, and how we might reinvent the ways in which we
conduct work, address societal ills and favor marginalized populations, all
while respecting the norms of behavior that constitute an ethical society.
While the pandemic has brought with it unprecedented challenges for our era,
it has also served as a much-needed wake-up call to more directly tackle the
seemingly intractable problems that fray the corners of the fabric of a
civil society. 

We focus the theme of the conference on the ethical effects of the
Post-COVID recovery on markets, workers, consumers, and educators including,
but not limited to issues related to: health and well-being; the Great
Resignation; economic freefall or economic rebound; climate change; social
justice and equity; human dignity; and, the common good. Keynote addresses
by leaders of industry, higher education and NGOs, along with academic paper
sessions and paper development workshops will be used to spur discussion
amongst conference participants on critical ethical issues stemming from our
experience of the post-pandemic age, which creates both challenges and
opportunities for business and society. 



We encourage proposals from academics, business professionals and young
scholars that relate to the role that the pandemic has played in urging a
just transformation of social systems in its wake, and recognizing the
fundamental ethical questions that surface in effecting change. We also
welcome proposals on broader ethical topics from scholars who have an
interest in and commitment to the study and discussion of business and
professional ethics. 

We require a two to three-page proposal (Word or PDF formats) that may
include one of the following: 

.              .An empirical, theoretical or pedagogical research paper,
including meta-analytic approaches tounderstanding knowledge in the field;

.              .A practical case study;

.              .An emerging pedagogical approach to bringing questions of
post-pandemic recovery to the classroom;

.              .A panel session or symposium featuring business, NFP, and/or
academic leaders who would discussproblems and challenges in fashioning
policy responses to the pandemic and post-pandemic recovery
