Drake University's 2010 Business Ethics Panel has been set to discuss "Business Relations in Developing Nations" on Monday, March 22.

The annual event, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. in Parents Hall in Olmsted Center, 2875 University Ave.

The discussion will feature a selection of panelists with different backgrounds and varying experiences with international relations. This year's panel includes:

  • Eric Idehen, vice president and diversity consultant at Wells Fargo Financial

Panelists will share their viewpoints on business practices in developing countries and answer questions from audience members. Topics will include wage issues, working conditions and social responsibilities of international businesses, among others.

The audience will have the opportunity to share their thoughts on the discussion as it takes place by using clickers. Participants will use the clickers to vote in audience polls and the results will be displayed during the panel.
