The Pioneers in Business Ethics Oral Video History Archive Project (Born Digital Records) | University of Illinois Archives
Since the early 1970s, pioneers in the field of business ethics, both academic and corporate, have been stretching the mind and conscience with challenging questions and relentless self-examination. The founders of this discipline established teaching methodologies and produced a body of solid research. In addition, other pioneers initiated the now flourishing ethics and compliance professions that are integral to most U.S. corporations and government agencies.
The Pioneers in Business Ethics Oral Video History Archive Project was created to preserve the history and wisdom of these founders, as well as the founders of the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics. The project interviewed over fifty pioneers via video and placed these interviews and their transcripts in the archives at the University of Illinois.
The Pioneers in Business Ethics Oral Video History Archive Project includes videos and transcriptions of focused stories on the evolution of Business Ethics, its founding thinkers and practitioners, and the ideas, concepts, and best practices that have emerged. These materials are resources for teachers, students, and researchers at schools of business across the country and by corporate ethics officers who today populate most companies.
