Who We Hang Out With – CGO Guests Give Us Their Best Ethics

 

Fresh off the plane, Nigerian Author and MacArthur Genius Award winner Chimamanda Adiche talks with the CGO about ethical challenges that have influenced her work.

Fresh off the plane, Nigerian Author and MacArthur Genius Award winner Chimamanda Adiche talks with the CGO about ethical issues that have informed her world view and found a place in her fiction and non-fiction writing.

Below is a very partial list of some of the people that have come to talk with us about the ethical issues in their professional lives, the challenges of their work, and how they navigate in complicated situations.  Our visitors spend time with us in conversation in class, and then join us for a meal so that we can continue the conversation.  It is a great opportunity for our students to learn, to network, to share their concerns with influential people, and ask questions of those with remarkable experiences.  Sometimes the Carnegies also ask about research, internship, or even work opportunities….  The list below has some categories that help to organize our areas of interest, but we are not limited to what you see here.
