The Global Dialogue Cafe is a joint project of Cisco Systems, CWRU's Information Technology Services, and the Laura and Alvin Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at CWRU. The Cafe offers an exciting experience for connecting "communities of interest" around the world with international experts in a wide range of subject areas.

As opposed to the "passive" educational opportunities available through podcasts, MOOCs, and other more typical online modalities, the technology platform for this project encourages fully interactive engagement from all participants. The Cafe provides an informal setting for interested individuals to participate actively with others in their local community, as well as at partner locations around the world, in faculty-facilitated discussion on topics of interest to the general community.

The technology platform is a High-Definition multi-point videoconferencing network developed by Cisco Systems and managed by the IT Services office of Case Western Reserve University. The pilot program will be initiated on the CWRU campus with partner cafe venues in Lisbon, London, and Paris. As a program open to the general public, the pilot sessions will be offered in the "lunchtime" 1:00 pm slot in the Eastern American time zone, which will correlate with early evening ("happy hour") time slot of Western Europe and slightly later in the evening farther east in Europe and the Middle East. Each partner cafe will manage its own technology and provide an on-site facilitator.

The pilot program consists of four sessions offered once a month on subject areas with broad public interest and appropriate faculty expertise at CWRU (or its affiliate institutions) to facilitate conversation. The overarching theme of the 4 sessions is contemporary ethics with practical applications.

Program Outline:

Session II (March 27): Join Steven Feldman, Professor of Design and Innovation at Weatherhead School of Management

Business ethics in China is "trouble in the middle" Western business cultures struggle in China with wide spread corruption, often involving government officials. To avoid breaking Foreign Corrupt Practices Act regulations, American executives transfer bribe-paying to Chinese middlemen. China remains a one party place with vast power concentrated in officials.
