7th Annual Japan Currents Seminar

"Why Good People Do Bad Things:
Ethics & Compliance in the Global Economy"

Thank you to all who supported this event!

Stay tuned for the Xavier Leadership Center's podcast,
recorded on March 4, featuring Nicholas Benes


 Below are some photos by Brian Sullivan & quotes from attendees.

As an international student at Xavier University, I had the opportunity to attend a seminar that broaches a special topic: ‘’Why good people do bad things.’’ I learned that in every company in the world, ethics and compliance are one of the pillars that leads to a healthy corporation. It was also interesting to see a comparison between work environments in Japan and the U.S, and what they can learn from each other. 

~Charafa Barhdadi, Xavier University Student

Even though I am not a business person,  I enjoyed the experience and I like the point that Mr. Nicholas Benes made when he said corporate culture does not have enough accountability. The title of the conference was also interesting to me because we don’t normally expect any bad attitude from good people.   

~Sana Elduweni, Xavier University Student

This conference was helpful to better understand Japan's corporate culture. I also realized that most successful companies highly value business ethics and it is part of their company vision. If I have another opportunity, I want to participate in this type of conference again. Thank you so much inviting us.

~Hyunkyoung  Shin, Xavier University Student

The part that made the biggest impression on me was idea that the higher the cost of wrong-doing, the more the incentive will be to act ethically. This is an important message for businesses. Thank you for organizing this event.

~Byeongchan Ahn, Xavier University Student

I was dismayed to learn how corrupt companies hurt the environment as well as non-stakeholders with little or no accountability due to limited liability laws. Mr. Benes offered an interesting solution to this problem.

Jehan Barnawi, Xavier University Student

The seminar “Why Good People Do Bad Things: Ethics and Compliance in the Global Economy” was an excellent opportunity to examine and discuss the critically important issue of ethics in business. Addressing topics of business ethics from both practical business perspectives and an academic perspective was valuable.  There were many opportunities for meaningful dialogue as well as networking.

~Madeleine Mitchell, Senior Teaching Professor, Xavier University

The Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) Cincinnati Chapter
Announces the 2020 US Census Initiative

2020年は10年に一度の国勢調査の年です。

Every Person Counts!

The US Constitution mandates that everyone in the country be counted every 10 years. Like the rest of the country, Greater Cincinnati has many populations that the U.S. Census Bureau considers hard-to-count, and many that are geographically hard-to-reach. These groups include: young children, highly mobile persons (those who travel or move homes frequently), racial and ethnic minorities, speakers of English as a second language,  low income persons, individuals with mental or physical disabilities,and those who do not live in traditional housing. It is important for each person to be accurately counted in order for our region to receive the appropriate share of government funding for education, health care, transportation, social and emergency response services.  The Census seeks to count each person regardless of their immigration or visa status, and all information must be kept confidential.
