Virtuous businesses can and must behave responsibly, promoting human values, correctly managing their activities with transparency and in a way that is attentive to the expectations of the public, such that their organizational behavior is perceived as such by the community.
These are themes of the meeting of Management by Ethics, "Relationality and Inclusion: Constructing organizations open to relationship. Accepting the truth of the other." The meeting, which took place May 18 at Illy Coffee in Milan, was organized by MCE, ELIS, and Riccardo Illy, President Illy Group. There were over 60 participants, including administrators, presidents, and managers of large companies on the national and international scene.
Illy shared his story at the beginning of the meeting, concluding with a quote from Shimon Peres: "You will be a true leader when you are able to value your enemy in the way you alue yourself."
Fr. Martin Schlag spoke for MCE, who said that "Justice means give each one his or her due; mercy means giving what is mine to the other." And, "The common good is necessary and inclusive; it is not only the sum of individual goods, but a product. If you trample on human dignity, even if it is only a person in your own organization, you harm the common good. Mercy is not compassion, but includes the effort to remove the causes of evil. At the heart of mercy is gift, a free act."

Wednesday, May 4, 2016 from 15:00-17:00 in Aula Alvaro del Portillo (Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, Piazza Sant'Apollinare, 49) prof. Frédéric Gonand (University Paris-Dauphine) will speak on the the often controversial relation between these two worlds in a lesson entitled: Economics and Ecology: a credible dialogue?
In light of the encyclical Laudato Si' there is much debate on this issue, both in the academic and political spheres. For this reason we have decided to dedicate a day to deepening our understanding of the issues, which will close out the three-year cycle of this seminar.
The lesson will take place in English.
