Times are tough and we all need to earn money, so would you say no to organising an event you didn’t agree with or working with a company with questionable morals?
Marriott has come under fire this week for refusing to cancel a conference by anti-Muslim hate group ACT for America. Meanwhile, peace activists blockaded London ExCeL recently because it was playing host to the world’s biggest arms fair (102 arrests were made). Does a venue, for example, have a moral duty to not allow events like these?
What would you do if you were asked to organise an event somewhere like Saudi Arabia, where women are not allowed out without a man or to drive a car? Have you ever faced an ethical dilemma when it comes to your work?
