The second event in the series focused around integrity as it relates to a firm's values, its interactions with clients, and how it can be integrated into public policy. The discussion featured Dominic Barton, Global Managing Director of McKinsey & Company, perhaps the world’s most prominent management consulting firm. He has a fascinating perspective on integrity — from the importance of ethics in business and the need for capitalism to take a longer-run view, to the compatibility of economic prosperity and environmental sustainability. 

McGill economics professor Christopher Ragan is a longtime analyst of Canadian economic policy, is currently the Chair of Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission, and has been a senior advisor to both the Governor of the Bank of Canada and to the federal Minister of Finance. Together, they discussed integrity in governance, including whether management schools today are teaching what is really needed for tomorrow’s business leaders to perform in a way that is both good for shareholders and for society.
