special projects, events and more
Many times a story is hard to place - is it biography, comedy, tragedy, an unusual event or a special interest item worthy of extra attention?
Inspired by a professor, Scott Harper, during one of the Ethics courses I completed for my recent Masters degree in Leadershiup Studies, I embarked on an as-yet unfinished journey in an effort not only to summarize the ongoing tragedy of the people of Bhopal, India after the 1984 Methyl-isocyanate gas cloud disaster, but also to wrap my arms around the continuing impact to the people and the region as well as what remains undone. Clearly Bhopal was, and is, a tragedy on a grand scale, and none of our lessons will be complete if the Bhopali people continue to struggle.
Perhaps my 2009 essay asks more questions than it answers - but it also poses solutions, workable ones - worthy of consideration not only in this specific tragedy but by any group of leaders who inherit an ethical liability.Though an updated version of this feature has become an extension of the GardenOpus book chapter Beetles Meet Their Match - the 2009 version is included here in its entirety.
