Giving Voice to Values (GVV) is an innovative approach to promoting a higher level of integrity in education and the workplace. Launched by The Aspen Institute and the Yale School of Management and supported at Babson College from 2009-2016, GVV is now based at University of Virginia Darden School of Business. Drawing on actual experience as well as scholarship, GVV fills a long-standing and critical gap in the development of values-centered leaders. GVV is not about persuading people to be more ethical. Rather GVV starts from the premise that most of us already want to act on our values, but that we also want to feel that we have a reasonable chance of doing so effectively and successfully. This curriculum is about raising those odds. In this informal session, GVV founder and director Dr. Gentile will explain the rationale and principles behind this empowering approach to developing the ethical muscles – the skills and confidence – required to voice and act on our values. Gentile will identify the 5 main obstacles to integrating ethics and values into the business and how the GVV pedagogy addresses them. After a description of the GVV approach, there will be small group discussions about how to apply these ideas as instructors, researchers, students, and/or practitioners.
