The Intersection of Ethics and Knowledge Management

I am so pleased to see that the Southern California Knowledge
Management Forum have set a very powerful theme for this year's
conference.To my mind,'Ethics and Knowledge Management' are the
key issues before us, whether it's developing a KM strategy for
Human Rights, Extreme Poverty, or simply increasing the level of
trust within the organization.

Third Annual Meeting, August 5 - 6, 2009
Pepperdine University, Malibu, CA

Conference Theme

The theme of this year's conference is "The Intersection of Ethics and Knowledge Management." The global business and economic landscape has seen many recent changes and firms are being faced with new challenges each day. But can all of the efforts to manage the knowledge of the firm be considered ethical and socially responsible? The conference seeks to explore the development and application of corporate knowledge practices and issues emerging in the knowledge economy from a social/ethical perspective. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

Social, cultural and ethical impact of Web 2.0
Advancing privacy, security and trust in a knowledge-driven economy
Advancing globally responsible practices through knowledge management
Ownership, collaboration and digital rights management
Individual rights vs. Collective rights
Legal (and illegal) implications
Stewardship, mentoring and succession management
Multi-generational learning and knowledge-sharing
Return on investment and corporate social responsibility (CSR)
Establishing values-centered employees
