Brian Grim, president of the religious Freedom & Business Foundation, has been leading discussions at the nexus of faith and business as part of the Horasis Global Visions Community since 2016.
Philip Morris International’s COO, Jacek Olczak, will join Brian Grim tomorrow to explore how religious insights can help companies regain trust. Dr. David Miller, director of Princeton University’s Faith & Work Initiative will share insights from his white paper “Towards a ‘Restoration of Trust’: Preliminary Insights and Lessons from Wisdom Traditions” (co-authored with Dr. Michael Thate).
Dr. Miller served as an independent, external ethics advisor to PMI and was asked by PMI to write the white paper considering the question of “the restoration of trust” in a corporate context, drawing on wisdom literature found in various religious traditions. This project and preliminary white paper came up with eleven theses on the restoration of trust through the lenses of the three Abrahamic traditions (see graphic).
Following comments by Dr. Miller, will be contributions from Canon Sarah Snyder, Archbishop of Canterbury’s Special Adviser for Reconciliation, UK; Ahmed Alhaddad, Chief Executive Officer, Swishhair, USA; Faisal Bin Muaammar, Secretary General, KAICIID Dialogue Centre, Austria; and Brahmeshanandacharya Swamiji, Spiritual Leader, India.
