What do we talk about when we talk about ethics? Questions of moral philosophy affect all facets of our everyday existence. There are fundamentals of decency, of responsibility, of community, that underpin and define our society, but what are they?
Every second month throughout 2010 Australia’s finest ethical thinkers and industry experts will come together to tease out those principles that run deeper than our Codes & Practices, our Rules & Regulations. How might we live an ethical life in the minefield of contemporary relations?

A panel of corporate movers and shakers and keen-eyed observers come together to debate best practices: do they exist, are they followed or does anything go in the world of high finance?
