PHILADELPHIA (August 29, 2014) — Saint Joseph’s University will host the academic year’s first lecture in the Arrupe Center Business Leaders Series on Tuesday, September 9. A reception will be held in Mandeville Hall’s Wolfington Teletorium at 6 p.m. followed by a discussion of “Ethics in Advertising: Issues and Insights” by Miles Young, CEO and chairman of Ogilvy & Mather.

Founded in 1948, Ogilvy & Mather is one of the world’s most successful advertising agencies and is headquartered in New York City. Young supervises offices in over 120 countries and has worked on campaigns for the world’s top brands, including IBM and Kodak.

Young will draw on his extensive advertising experience to explore the ethical issues involved in the industry. The free event is open to the public, and registration is required to secure a seat.

The Pedro Arrupe Center for Business Ethics was founded in 2005 at Saint Joseph’s to prepare students to engage in careful, sustained and critical reflection on ethical issues and to use that reflection in their business decision making. Young’s lecture extends this mission and brings major executives to campus.

The event is sponsored by the Richard D. Donchian Foundation, which funds programs that strengthen the human spirit and enhance personal integrity.
