Generous gift from Lester J. Fernandes will endow research Chair in Business Ethics

Published: 29 April 2024

When it comes to ethical behaviour in business, there are many shades of grey. Parsing them requires a strong ethical compass, and the Laidley Centre for Business Ethics and Equity, founded in 2022 with a gift from David Laidley (BCom’67), is helping the next generation of business leaders do exactly that. Thanks to a generous gift from Lester J. Fernandes (MBA’82), a new research Chair in Business Ethics endowment will help expand the Laidley Centre’s footprint. “Old sayings like ‘greed is good’ and ‘the end justifies the means’ are just that – old sayings,” says Fernandes. “It is important that the professional who occupies the Chair has the will, integrity, and experience to investigate issues that are not always straightforward or transparent.”
