#var:page_name# cover

Business has never been more challenged as we move into a world of AI and Robotics. How do we ensure a just and orderly transition in an environment where there is such a trust deficit and a growing sense of inequality (real or perceived)?

What role does Ethics have to play? What legacy can we hope to leave our children and grandchildren? Peter Joseph, Chairman and Simon Longstaff, Executive Director of the St James Ethics Centre, will reflect on these questions after a lifetime in business and the social sector.

The St James Ethics Centre is an independent not for profit organisation that has been working for 25 years to help people and organisations navigate the complexity and uncertainty of difficult ethical issues.
