On 2nd-4th June 2016, the Jubilee Centre held the Character and Virtue in the Professions Conference on campus at the University of Birmingham. The three-day event brought together scholars and practitioners from across the professions to speak about the role of character and virtue in both training and practice of professions such as nursing, medicine, teaching, business and the military.
The international conference was attended by delegates from around the world, and included key note speeches from Prof. Sarah Banks (Durham), Prof. Geoff Moore (Durham), Prof. Justin Oakley (Monash), Prof. Ann Gallagher (Surrey) and Prof. Nancy Sherman (Georgetown).
Journalist Richard McComb attended the conference and wrote a blog about ethical insights from an outside. It can be read here.
