.......              .Upcoming KBEI Events: 2015-2016........     ........



The 2015-2016 KBEI calendar begins Monday August 31 as business and civic leaders in Michigan come to Grand Rapids for a presentation titled "Social Capital, Economic Diversity and Civic Well being in Flint and Grand Rapids."  Inspired by a 1946 C. Wright Mills study KBEI Director Michael DeWilde and UM Ross School of Business professor Jerry Davis will draw on empirical data, interviews, and current economic and sociological research to offer views on how these two major Michigan cities came to their present states and how they might face the future.

On Thursday, October 8, (in)famous biological anthropologist Helen Fisher comes to Grand Valley to offer a public talk on how biology and gender affect leadership ("The Biology of Leadership"). This is the annual Barry Castro Business Ethics lecture, in partnership with the Hauenstein Center's "American Conversations" series at Grand Valley.  More details will soon be forthcoming.

On Thursday evening, January 28th of 2016 noted author Russell Shorto (Amsterdam and The Island at the Center of the World) will be here to engage a conversation on capitalism, specifically the Northern European style "versus" the American model.   

The Director of the KBEI, Michael DeWilde, gave a talk titled "What Do We Owe Each Other?" Sunday, July 19th at the C3 meeting in Grand Haven, MI. 

On Friday, Oct. 16 he'll be at the International Neuroethics Society meeting in Chicago to deliver a poster session titled "What (and How) Do We Teach When We Teach Neuroethics?"

We have these and many other events to look forward to this year.  Please check back soon for more information.
