About This Blog

The Building an Ethical World Blog is an initiative by the Olsson Center for Applied Ethics at the University of Virginia Darden School of Business.

Ethics is about having meaningful conversations on the subject of how the decisions we make impact one another. With globalization and the advent of new communications technologies, our different perspectives on morality—whether they be cultural, political, religious, or ideological in origin—bump into each other with ever greater frequency, sometimes with tragic results.

The aim of this blog is to create a dialogue that cuts across generations, across walks of society, across academic and professional disciplines, and across cultures to put ethical issues center stage.
