The new Center for Trust Studies in the Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona is set to host its inaugural panel on Friday, January 29 at 9:00 a.m. Conducted via Zoom, the discussion features three distinguished panelists that will tackle the topic of “Why Trust Matters” including addressing how trust can be produced and what can still be learned about this important subject.
“Interest in the subject of trust has soared over the past two decades,” says Oliver Schilke, associate professor of management and organizations in the Eller College and CTS director. “The insights we share around trust at this event will be both critical in and applicable to the business world where important financial, personnel and structural decisions requiring trustworthiness assessments are made every day.” Schilke, who established the Center with support of a five-year National Science Foundation Grant, will serve as moderator of the session.
Following the presentations by Andrew Swinand, CEO of Leo Burnett ad agency and former venture capitalist/founder; Roger Mayer, professor of management, innovation and entrepreneurship in the Poole College of Management at North Carolina State University; and Roy Lewicki, the Irving Abramowitz Memorial Professor Emeritus in the Fisher College of Business at Ohio State University, session participants can engage in an interactive discussion.
