Welcome to ethix Magazine
Technology is a disruptive force for business. On the one hand, it creates new opportunities to reach new customers with new products and services in ways not imagined a few decades ago. But how does the business transition from where it is to these new opportunities? On the other hand, technology leads to unintended consequences in business where we have few laws, little experience, and not much wisdom. How should business leaders navigate this new territory?
In 1998, when Ethix was started, founders Al Erisman and David Gill sought insight for these questions. We identified business leaders who seemed to be a step ahead of others in thinking about purpose, ethical practices, and creative ways to create flourishing, not just for themselves but for their organizations, customers, and community. The archives here include lengthy conversations with more than 100 such leaders including those leading Fortune 500 publicly traded companies, privately held firms, government leaders, and scholars. Industries range from automotive and aerospace to technology to healthcare to retail. In addition, you can find reviews of books, essays, and insights for this journey that continues.
