Ryerson University Prof. Chris MacDonald is one of the world’s leading business ethics bloggers. His site, businessethicsblog.com, features more than 1,100 posts on stories such as the domestic abuse scandal of professional footballer Ray Rice, religion in corporate culture and Facebook’s (ever looming) privacy control controversies.

His commentary fuses philosophical and business perspectives when analyzing current events. MacDonald’s writing has earned him the title of “100 Most Influential People in Business” by the Ethisphere Institute four years consecutively.

MacDonald, who teaches at the Ted Rogers School of Management, is also the co-editor of Business Ethics Journal Review and a nonresident senior fellow at Duke University’s Kenan Institute for Ethics. In our interview, MacDonald discusses corporate responsibility and how it applies to shaping public consciousness.
