Title: The Responsibilities of Energy Leadership
Author: Mulva, James J.
Description: The annual lecture of the ConocoPhillips C. J. “Pete” Silas Program in Ethics and Leadership was presented on March 4, 2009 from 4-5 pm in room G011 of the Molecular Science and Engineering Building on the Georgia Tech Campus. Ethics, leadership, and quality, grounded in strong communication skills and professionalism, are essential components of an engineering education. To spotlight the importance of these core values, in 1995 the Phillips Petroleum Foundation awarded a grant to the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering to develop the ConocoPhillips/C.J. “Pete” Silas Program in Ethics and Leadership. Named in recognition of the outstanding professional achievements of Georgia Tech chemical engineering alumnus C.J. “Pete” Silas, who retired from Phillips Petroleum as president and CEO in 1994, the program focuses on technical and business decisions that have ethical ramifications. These topics, and related areas in engineering, technology, and ethics, are integrated into the core chemical and biomolecular engineering curriculum and are addressed in an annual public symposium featuring prominent industrialists and ethicists.
