    Is there a 'say-do' gap when it comes to sustainability in Ireland?

    While climate change and sustainability are the biggest issues facing the planet, is there in fact a ‘say-do’ gap between talk and action?

    The Truth About Whistleblowers

    The Truth About Whistleblowers

    While society lauds whistleblowers for their bravery and integrity, the truth is that, despite protective legislation, whistleblowing is still a fraught experience often ruining lives and careers.
     
    Why is that and how can society, organisations and businesses ensure that whistleblowing can be more accepted and does not always have to address deep-seated infrastructural change?
     
    These are just some of the fascinating questions that Kate Kenny, Professor of Business and Society at NUI Galway, and one of the foremost experts on whistleblowing, answered on this latest episode of Insights, the CUBS UCC podcast.
     
    For more on this topic, Prof. Kenny’s books include: Whistleblowing: Toward a New Theory (Harvard University Press, 2019) and The Whistleblowing Guide: Speak Up Arrangements, Challenges and Best Practices (Wiley, 2019).

    Why it's time to stop blaming governments and look at our own consumption and sustainability

    Why it's time to stop blaming governments and look at our own consumption and sustainability

    While the environment is the most important issue affecting our lives, and we may decry harmful policies of governments and multi-nationals, what about our own consumer lives and how does our daily behaviour influence the future of the planet? 
     
    These are the questions being asked by Dr. Stephen Onakuse, a lecturer in food business and development at UCC who believes we need to look more at our own individual behaviours and actions to best influence consumption and sustainability.

    Thia Hennessy on the plans and exciting times ahead for the new CUBS Business School

    It’s exciting times for CUBS UCC with plans afoot for the new Business School in Cork city centre after €17.25m was invested in a new site at Union Quay that has planning permission for a 200,000 sq ft building.
     
    Thia Hennessy, Dean of CUBS UCCC, spoke to Anthony McDonnell, Professor of Human Resource Management and presenter of the Insights podcast, and explained the importance and need for this new business school.
     
    This will be a huge project, she explained, and with increasing student numbers, will be badly needed, providing more facilities, bigger lecture halls and an entrepreneurship hub, as well as providing added vibrancy, increased footfall and a boost to Cork city itself.
