7:00 - EVENT - Breakfast by the Bay : Diversity - who benefits and does it matter? Website | More Information
Addressing true issues of diversity and employing leaders who are representative of an organisation's stakeholders can bring new voices, experiences and approaches to the decision making process, adding depth to existing skills and ideas.

Yet while the benefits of having diversity in an organisation are now widely accepted by the majority of ASX-listed companies and non-profit organisations, the focus remains on gender rather than other measures of diversity such as ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, and age. The panelists will discuss the importance of diversity, the costs of implementing diversity, and how to address the issues of building more inclusive and truly diverse organisations.

Price; Members $45 / Guests $55 / Table of Ten $450 Price includes two-course breakfast and panel discussion.

18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - What Does Ethics Have to do with Leadership? Website | More Information
A public lecture by Michael Levine, Winthrop Professor of Philosophy and Jacqueline Boaks, The University of Western Australia.

Talk of leadership seems to dominate public discourse. Many of us have images of Martin Luther King, Jr. as a moral leader harnessing and focussing the hopes of millions in the mid-twentieth century. Millions of people read books written by corporate ‘leaders’ such as Richard Branson, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet in an attempt to not only gain insight into their money making abilities but also look to them for inspiration with respect to how whole societies can or should change. Teenagers wear t-shirts and badges that appeal to Che Guevara as leader. Sporting figures, especially coaches and captains, write books and give motivational speeches as ‘leaders’.

Much of this talk includes discussion about values and ethical leadership. But is this focus on values and ethics in leadership a sign of natural fit between the two, or perhaps a sign of deep seated concern that there might not be any natural fit at all? Is it simply wishful thinking? This talk will explore whether we have reason for thinking that ethics and leadership go together, and the reasons and ways that this thinking can and does go wrong.

Michael Levine is Winthrop Professor of Philosophy at UWA where he teaches a course on philosophy, film and aesthetics. His publications include: Prospects for an Ethics of Architecture (with Bill Taylor. Routledge, 2011),Doing Philosophy, Watching Movies (with Damian Cox. Boston: Wiley-Blackwell, 2011), Politics Most Unusual: Violence, Sovereignty and Democracy in the ‘War on Terror’ (with Damian Cox and Saul Newman. Palgrave Macmillan, 2009) and Integrity and the Fragile Self (M. Levine; D. Cox; M. LaCaze. Ashgate, 2003.). He is currently working on regret (oh brother!!!) and other emotions of self-assessment.

Jacqueline Boaks studied philosophy at UWA before working in management roles in several large Perth organisations. She is now undertaking a PhD in Philosophy looking at leadership in the areas of ethics, political philosophy and business literature.

This lecture is a part of the Institute of Advanced Studies 2012 lecture series ‘Global Transformation and Public Ethics’. This series of free public lectures aims to stimulate considered debate about urgent issues in public ethics and policy as well as reflecting on ways we can improve public discourse about such issues.

Cost: Free, no RSVP required.
