Ethics in Business – Film Series to be presented by Faculty of Business at HMC in Mississauga
Sheridan Faculty of Business Dean, Bill Holmes is pleased to present a Tuesday evening film series Ethics in Business at the Hazel McCallion campus. The film series covers a number of issues in business ethics from corporate responsibility to social media begins Tuesday October 18 at 7:00 pm in room A145 at HMC and runs for eight weeks concluding on Tuesday December 6, 2011. All showing times will start at 7:00 pm.
The first film in the series is The Corporation based on the book The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power by Joel Bakan.
The film website describes The Corporation as “Provoking, witty, stylish and sweepingly informative, THE CORPORATION explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time. Part film and part movement, The Corporation is transforming audiences and dazzling critics with its insightful and compelling analysis. Taking its status as a legal “person” to the logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist’s couch to ask “What kind of person is it?” The Corporation includes interviews with 40 corporate insiders and critics – including Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Milton Friedman, Howard Zinn, Vandana Shiva and Michael Moore – plus true confessions, case studies and strategies for change.”
Dean, Bill Holmes will introduce the film.
