In the Fall of 2012, the Center launched a new year-long series called Ethics and the Professions. Each event is a conversation between Scotty McLennan (Stanford Dean for Religious Life) and a faculty member and/or practitioner from a particular profession. McLennan is also a lawyer by training and he has often taught a similarly named course at Stanford's Graduate School of Business.
On April 8, McLennan is in conversation with New York Times writer Michael Winerip. Over nearly 30 years, Winerip has written five different columns — Our Towns, On Sunday, On Education (three times), Parenting and Generation B. He has been a staff writer for the magazine, investigative reporter, national political correspondent, metro reporter and a deputy metro editor. In his new assignment, overseeing the Booming series, Winerip is writing about the 78 million Americans born during the post war population explosion that stretched from 1946 to 1964.
Stanford students (both undergraduate and graduate) will leave Stanford and embark on careers in a variety of fields. It is our hope that this series of in-depth conversations will allow us to bring out the ethical issues unique to each profession so students (and the larger Stanford community) can engage with the issues in ways that often aren't addressed in the classroom.
This event is open to the public.
