Monday, March 16
12:30 PM-2:15 PM, Newman Library, Room 750
The Ethics of Influencers, speakers, Gil Eyal, HYPR, Hamutal Schieber, Schieber Research, LLC, and Prof. Nizan Packin, Department of Law
Using Influencers has become one of the hottest trends in marketing. In 2018, 81% of marketers reported that using influencers as part of their marketing plan was an effective strategy. But there are myriad ethical issues associated with this trend that must be understood and carefully addressed. For example, there is the issue of inauthentic partnerships and content, as influencers do not always use or even like the products they endorse on social media. Similarly, influencers do not always disclose if a certain recommendation is a sponsored endorsement or not (a 2018 survey of influencers done by Marketer demonstrated that less than half of the respondents labeled their endorsements with the FTC-mandated hashtags when they are specifically asked, and 7% never did so at all). This Ethics of Influencers event will cover these, as well as other issues, and include a general discussion on the ethical implication of digital marketing technologies.

Timothy “Speed” Levitch: In Conversation
Timothy “Speed” Levitch, an actor, author, tour guide, host of Hulu’s original series Up to Speed, and subject of the documentary The Cruise, joins Baruch Prof. Ian Singleton to discuss his work. Levitch’s work explores little known layers of history or, as he puts it, “monumentally ignored monuments.” Such discussions can lead to novel insights about topics such as colonialism, labor relations, even the Civil War. They also lead to new perspectives on history which interrogate longstanding narratives and the motives behind them.

Giving Voice to Values, speaker, Mary C. Gentile, Author and Creator/Director of Giving Voice to Values Business Curriculum
Join the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity as we welcome back Mary C. Gentile. Dr. Gentile empowers business leaders with the skills to voice and act on their values, and to align their professional path with their principles. Her book, Giving Voice to Values, is inspired by a curriculum Gentile launched at the Aspen Institute with the Yale School of Management, with interim support from Babson College, and now at University of Virginia Darden School of Business. The curriculum has been piloted in over 1,000 schools and organizations on all seven continents.Challenging the assumptions about business ethics at companies and business schools, she argues that often the issue isn’t distinguishing what is right or wrong, but knowing how to act on your values despite opposing pressure. Drawing on actual business experiences as well as social science research, Gentile will offer advice, practical exercises, and scripts for handling a wide range of ethical dilemmas.
