Transitioning From the Orange Bubble: Ethics & Responsibility in the Real World - September 7, 2023
The Princeton Club of Chicago welcomes you to cocktails and dinner with Professor David W. Miller, Director of the Princeton Faith & Work Initiative. David will share briefly about some of his teaching and research on values-based leadership in challenging times and then moderate a discussion with a panel of four recent alumni, asking challenging questions like:
What was it like to be on campus in the era of free-speech debates, renaming controversies, political polarization, heavy campus construction, and COVID-19 confinement?
How did Princeton prepare you for the transition to the “real world?”
How do you maintain your moral compass in your personal and professional lives?
Come prepared with your own questions!
David brings an unusual “bilingual” perspective to the classroom and the boardroom. Since 2008, he has been on the faculty of Princeton University, serving as the founding Director of the Faith & Work Initiative (FWI) as a Senior Professional Specialist and Lecturer. Prior to academia, he spent 16 years in senior executive positions in international business and finance, including eight years in London.
At Princeton, the nickname of his signature course is “Business Ethics: Succeeding Without Selling Your Soul.” Outside of Princeton, he serves as an advisor to CEOs and C-suite executives in some of the most competitive and challenging industry sectors around the globe. An article in the Wall Street Journal featured his work helping develop the code of ethics for Citibank, referring to him as their “on-call ethicist.”
