This is Now: Susan Liautaud

February 9, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST

This event is online.

If you’re trying to do the right thing but you’re not sure how, you’re not alone.

CRISPR. Robot caretakers. COVID-19. Voting. Facial recognition. Everything Chidi Anagonye has ever done. Our modern world bombards us daily with ethical challenges, and the stakes for ethical decision-making have never been higher, but a path forward on some of today’s toughest decisions may seem as clear as mud. How do I vote if I don’t like either candidate? Should I try a home genetic testing kit like 23andMe? Should I post photos of my children on social media? What should I do if I witness harassment at work?

In a compulsively readable, powerful simple and easy format, world-class Stanford ethicist Susan Liautaud offers help in a timely new book The Power of Ethics: How to Make Good Choices in a Complicated World. An approachable, practical guide for making the best possible decision on even the thorniest of issues, this book has been praised alike by CEOs, nonprofit presidents, and even the creator of The Good Place . Drawing on decades as an ethics advisor to large organizations, Liautaud shows how simple questions based on a few key ethical dimensions can create a sea change of positive decision-making, rippling outward to transform our own lives and the world. All you need are the right tools.

In conversation with in-house journalist Angie Coiro for a well-timed This Is Now hour, this February 9th conversation promises fun, deep insight, and practical knowledge. Sign up today to shine a light on your toughest quandaries… because how we approach hard ethical choices today can radically transform the world.


SUSAN LIAUTAUD teaches cutting-edge ethics courses at Stanford University, serves as chair of Council of the London School of Economics and Political Science, and is the founder of the nonprofit platform The Ethics Incubator. She is the managing director of Susan Liautaud & Associates Limited, which advises clients from global corporations to NGOs on complex ethics matters. She also chairs and serves on numerous global nonprofit boards. She divides her time between Palo Alto, California, and London.
