Responsible Management Lectures: The Discourse on Corporate Digital Responsibility

October 21, 2021, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Online via Zoom

We would like to invite you to the first lecture in the “Responsible Management Lectures” in the winter semester 2021.

We are very pleased that Prof. Dr. Hannah Trittin-Ulbrich, Junior Professorship of Business Administration, in particular Business Ethics, Leuphana University Lüneburg, will give a lecture in English.

The Discourse on Corporate Digital Responsibility

The transformation of business operations through digital technologies is much celebrated in management research and practice, which often emphasizes the commercial and economic potential of the digital transformation. Simultaneously, digitalization is recognized also to be a threat to the individual rights of users, employees, and citizens alike, as recent contributions allude to the ‘dark side’ of the digital transformation. Indeed, the digital transformation creates new ethical challenges and dilemmas as human behavior can increasingly be predicted, controlled, and modified.

This lecture will provide an overview of the emerging debate about “Corporate Digital Responsibility” (CDR) and of how different social actors attempt to shape the discourse on CDR and emerging notions of responsible business practice in the digital age. Finally, it will outline avenues for future research at the intersection of digital transformation and responsible management.

Registration is requested.
We are looking forward to your participation!
