Social Media: Employee Ideology v. Company Values (Jun 2018)
As mobile technology and social media continue to evolve, individuals are increasingly able to express their personal beliefs to wider and wider audiences. Explore the practical and legal challenges presented when agents are recorded, depicted, or seen expressing views on social media in a way that conflicts with a company’s cultural values. Hear real world situations, including the events of Charlottesville, Virginia, the viral manifesto on women in technology written by an individual engineer, and the photographs, recordings, and recountings of intolerable behavior by powerful figures in entertainment, politics, and business.
