Firms working in multiple cultures must deal not just with conflicting laws and customs, but often with conflicting moral and ethical systems as well. Is a company ever justified in making ethical compromises in one area in order to do good in another? Are there times when it would be unethical not to compromise?
Discussing the ethical challenges of working in multiple cultures will be a panel of Ohio University professors and students with first-hand experience of the kinds of problems business and individuals face, and with suggestions for dealing with those challenges.
