UST Evening on the Principle of Subsidiarity in Health Care Environments on February 24th

The topic of the 2016 annual Higher Calling dinner and lecture is the principle of subsidiarity and its application in business and health care environments. Inspiration for the topic is Respect in Action: Applying Subsidiarity in Business, a 2015 book co-authored by four St. Thomas faculty members and addressed to leaders who are committed to creating organizations where employees and firms can develop and flourish.

The dinner and lecture are intended especially for leaders in search of creative and effective ways to humanize the workplace. The lecture and subsequent discussion with two business executives will explore how organizations can pursue the common good through practices that take the integral development of the human person at least as seriously as economic prosperity.

Michael Naughton, Ph.D., will offer introductory remarks on the idea of the Catholic social principle of subsidiarity, its meaning, applicability and significance in a business environment. Respondents Emery Koenig and Sr. Maureen McGuire will provide a practitioner’s perspective about subsidiarity and its relevance to their work. Jeanne Buckeye, Ph.D., will serve as a panelist and Michelle Rovang, director of the Veritas Institute, will serve as moderator.
