ethical decision-making

Ethical business leadership has become more important than ever in an era of social media and consumers that are willing to vote with their wallets.

Whether an issue of discrimination, sexual harassment, environmental damage or financial misconduct, allegations of unethical behaviour within a business can destroy years – even decades – of built-up community trust.

Now, the COVID-19 pandemic is creating new ethical dilemmas for business leaders and managers.

Cranlana Centre for Ethical Leadership CEO Vanessa Pigrum and Steven Ronson, Fair Work Ombudsman Executive Director for Enforcement and alumnus of the Executive Colloquium program, highlight the importance of ethical decision-making for leadership teams and boards.

housing

A $7.7 billion investment to build 30,000 homes and repair thousands more would raise economic output by $15.7 billion.

Peter Mares, Cranlana Centre’s Lead Moderator, says that as we mark the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, the pandemic calls for a level of nation building ambition similar to 1945 — when the urgent need to build housing as part of post-war reconstruction forged the first 10-year Commonwealth-state housing agreement.

In the subsequent decades housing policy involved similar agreements, with the federal government funding the states to build social housing. Over the past 25 years we have dropped the ball. Now is the time to pick it up again.

The second of a 12-part series CBD News is running, attempting to explore the role that housing can and should play within Australian society and why it is important to our economy that we house all Australians, rich or poor. Peter Mares, author of “No Place Like Home” and lead moderator at the Cranlana Centre for Ethical Leadership, was asked to share his thoughts on why housing all Australians should be considered an economic imperative for Australia.

Belinda Duarte

Belinda Duarte is the CEO of Culture is Life, an organisation pushing forward Indigenous-led solutions to lower the rate of youth suicide. She’s also the recipient of the 2020 Chief Executive Women Vincent Fairfax Fellowship scholarship.

As a proud Wotjobaluk and Dja Dja Wurrung woman, Duarte points to the first time she experienced racism as a child, and how it woke her up to the inherent challenges and disadvantages Aboriginal people faced in their country compared to their white counterparts.

Since then, she has drawn on the strength and experience of her elders past and present, and her community, to inform her leadership and achieve change for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
