Panel Presentation – Dialogue on Business Ethics: “These Shining Lives”

5:00-7:00pm in Phoenix C, University Union
Open to students, faculty, staff, and the public. RSVP
In partnership with the UW-Green Bay Theatre program, the Austin E. Cofrin School of Business presents an interdisciplinary panel examining the case of the Radium Girls. The panel coincides with the UWGB Theatre Production, “These Shining Lives,” with shows starting February 28. “These Shining Lives” is the true-life story of four women who fought back against the 1920s-era Radium Dial Company after their work at the company made them sick. Despite numerous assurances that radium was safe, many women fell ill and many died from the effects of the poisonous chemical element. Our panel will tackle the case of the Radium Girls as the case applies to now. Our panelists are experts in death and dying, industrial safety, occupational disease, employment law, and women’s and gender studies. Could history repeat itself?

Scheduled panelists:

Illene Cupit, Professor of Human Development at the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay. Her research and publications have focused on college student bereavement, adolescent grief, gender issues in death and dying, and death in child care centers.

Lisa LeComte-Gleason, Strategic Consultant and certified Senior Human Resources Professional at Humana. Her experience also includes over 19 years in the manufacturing industry in various safety and human resource leadership roles.

Sue J. Mattison, Dean of the College of Professional Studies at the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay and Professor in the Professional Program in Education. Her research and publications have focused on racial differences in breast cancer treatment, survival, risk factors, and molecular markers; and the economic aspects of cancer treatment.

Ronald Pfeifer, retired from Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. in Green Bay. Mr. Pfeifer graduated from Northwestern Law School and represented employers in their relationships with their employees for 40 years.

Christine Smith, Chair of the Women's and Gender Studies Program at the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay and Associate Professor of Psychology and Human Development. Her research and publications have focused on gender, stigma, and relationships, and lesbian and gay issues.

Moderated by:

Ghadir Ishqaidef, Instructor of Human Resource Management at the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay. Her research and publications have focused on human resource management practices and work climate, non-traditional work arrangements, and career management.

Performance of “These Shining Lives” will take place at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 28 and March 1-2 and March 6-9 in the Jean Weidner Theatre at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts at UW-Green Bay. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door for adults; $12 in advance and $15 at the door for children (under 18) and seniors; and $10 for UW-Green Bay students.
