Inaugural lecture - Sustainable and Responsible: Organisational Behaviour for the Twenty-First Century

The challenges of adapting in business to meet the changing demands of an evolving society are discussed during a public lecture at the University of Chester.

“It is commonly said that we live in challenging times. We are preoccupied with sustainable futures and holding together our 'Today'. But what are the values and attitudes we should develop to deal with and build these futures?” Professor Stokes offers provocative and stimulating food for thoughts on these pressing questions of our time.

Professor Peter Stokes will deliver his inaugural lecture - Sustainable and Responsible: Organisational Behaviour for the Twenty-First Century: Trajectories, Challenges, Grey Zones, and the Role of Micro-Moments –on Tuesday, November 26 at 6.30pm.

Professor Stokes, who is the Deputy Dean of the University of Chester Business School, will address how in recent decades, various commentators have focused attention on behaviour and what might, and indeed in some cases should, constitute ethical, responsible and sustainable conduct. This is set against the backdrop of a contemporary world that is experiencing the major impacts of globalisation and widespread neo-industrialisation which, in turn, are producing consequent shifts in centres of power.

Professor Stokes said: “It is commonly said that we live in challenging times. We are preoccupied with sustainable futures and holding together our 'Today'. But what are the values and attitudes we should develop to deal with and build these futures?” Professor Stokes offers provocative and stimulating food for thoughts on these pressing questions of our time.

The lecture will take place in the Beswick Lecture Theatre CBE017, University of Chester Main Campus at 6.30pm. Tea and coffee will be served from 6pm and a complimentary drink will be available afterwards.
