What are the ways in which managers (don’t) support fake news in our society?

Maybe you have never thought about it in that way. However, organizations in which managers work are powerful and have impact on society. How do managers behave in these organizations? Which decisions have impact on society beyond the frame of organizations’ smooth running?

In our discussion we will focus on the intersection of management, marketing, critical thinking and business ethics. We will demonstrate some examples from real life experience, and we will mention what to pay attention to as a manager. This event is a combination of a lecture and a discussion. Aside from the main topic, you will have a chance to ask about anything from the sphere of fake new and critical thinking.
