Women in Research Management
Professor Laura J. Spence
Reader in Business Ethics, Director of the Centre for Research Into Sustainability, Royal Holloway, University of London
Dr. Spence is a business ethicist whose research focuses on small and medium sized enterprises, which comprise 99% of all private sector businesses.
In her interview, she spoke about how the work of Professor Carol Gilligan, a former Harvard professor and psychologist best known for her 1982 book In a Different Voice, has evolved into the Ethics of Care and given her a framework through which she can examine questions about how these organisations make ethical decisions.
