Closing Conference for Phase I of Practical Wisdom for Management Project

9-10 July, Yale University, USA

The Yale-EABIS Practical Wisdom Initiative looks at the practical virtues inherent in managerial decision-making, which leads to wise decisions in strategic management, leadership, finance, and human resource management. In this way it avoids the constraints imposed on debate and reflection by an externally conceived, normative, arbitrary list of virtues and ethical principles.


This project has produced deep conversations between practioneers and academic experts within each of the world’s six great faith traditions (Christian, Chinese, Jewish, Islamic, Indian and Buddhist). These will be synthesized, compared and extolled at a major global culminating gathering of business, academic, media and religious leaders at Yale in July.


This final conference conference has been created to bring together world renowned leaders, philosophers, economists, business executives and managerial scholars to engage in reflection and dialogue as the culmination of our series over the past three years on various religious and philosophical traditions in management.

This is an initiative from EABIS and Yale’s Center for Faith and Culture/Yale Divinity School, supported by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
