The Center for Global Business Stewardship at the Peter J. Tobin College of
Business, St. John's University will host the International Vincentian
Business Ethics Conference (IVBEC) in 2018. This conference attracts leading
academics to examine, discuss and develop the role of Business Ethics in
economic, political, corporate and social life today.  The Call for Papers
is attached, and we invite you to visit our website for more conference
details at  <> 


The theme of the IVBEC 2018 conference, People, Planet, Progress: Business
Ethics for a Global Society, addresses topics in all areas of business and
professional ethics, with a focus on the Sustainable Development Goals
(SDGs) developed by the United Nations in 2015. Keynote addresses by UN and
business leaders, panel sessions, academic paper sessions, and paper
development workshops will be used to spur discussion amongst conference
participants on ethics and ethical decision making in business. The
conference will feature work that highlights the progress made in achieving
global development goals and the challenges that remain in
institutionalizing them.  

Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of IVBEC is a great opportunity to take
stock of our progress for guidance, and to look to the future for innovative
solutions to business and society's most pressing ethical dilemmas. We
encourage proposals from academics, business professionals and young
scholars that relate to the role that ethical business plays in the
implementation and integration of the SDGs in the organizational ethos, and
that move us toward a better understanding of targets, measurement and
ethical adjustment in our policies and processes.


We hope that this opportunity to bring together scholars and practitioners
in a forum for discussion about the critical business ethics challenges we
all face will motivate collaboration between the education and business
sectors needed to model responsible leadership with positive social impact.
