Location: To Be Determined
One objective of the United Nations Global Compact is to emphasize the moral purpose of business, with member companies setting a high moral tone throughout the world.
To advance this vision of business and the common good, the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Religious Values in Business at the Mendoza College of Business, in partnership with the United National Global Compact, and the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education will convene a major conference at Notre Dame, March 20-22, 2011, titled “The UN Millennium Development Goals, The Global Compact, and The Common Good.”
The conference will bring together leading businesses to outline their projects, especially those advancing the MDGs (Millennium Development Goals) designed to help alleviate dire poverty. Academics, government officials, and NGO leaders will focus on some of the practical as well as the conceptual issues involved.
