Venue: Harvard Business School

This conference aims to identify new research topics in business ethics, including but not limited to topics that arise in a post-internet society. As such, we aim to promote excellent philosophical investigation of important new topics that are not already well-worn in business ethics. These include issues surrounding:

·      digital technology and social media;

·      privacy and information sharing;

·      diversity and discrimination, including dimensions affected by technology, and tech tools that may help or hinder diversity;

·      globalized supply chains, markets, and the associated externalities to well-being and the environment;

·      tradeoffs between increasing domestic inequality and decreasing global inequality, and other socioeconomic and demographic dynamics tied to technology;

·      ethical implications of technologies such as blockchain and cryptocurrency, including for network trust, regulatory capacity, and so on;

·      advertising and manipulation, including in light of advances in empirical psychology and behavioral economics.

We are also interested in work that identifies important and novel challenges for corporate responsibility beyond those listed above.

Please submit an abstract of approximately 500 words to both Brian Berkey ( and Mark Budolfson (
