Me in Brief
Wesley Cragg is a graduate of the Universities of Alberta and Oxford and an Alberta Rhodes Scholar. He was invited to York University in 1992 to develop an MBA program in business ethics for what is now the Schulich School of business where he also founded the Canadian Chapter of Transparency International. He has worked extensively with Natural Resources Canada, DFAIT, CIDA, a number of other federal government departments, and Export Development Canada. Mining and nuclear waste disposal issues have dominated his work as a private sector consultant and advisor. Dr. Cragg has published widely in Canadian and international journals and written and edited a number of books on: business ethics; business and human rights, values based management; corporate codes of ethics and their value and impact; the challenge of bribery and corruption in the global market place; and moral education; among other topics.
Dr. Cragg is currently a Senior Scholar and Professor at York University. He is also Project Director and Principal Investigator for the Canadian Business Ethics Research Network (CBERN). Funded by the Canadian Social Science and Humanities Research Council and other donors, CBERN’s goal is to encourage, support and raise the profile of business ethics research in Canada by encouraging networking and dialogue across the private, government, NGO and academic sectors. CBERN is headquartered in the Schulich School of Business at York University.
