The Leon S. Peters Ethics Lecture Series continues with a talk by Christopher Sterling, a Fresno State professor in the Craig School of Business Department of Management, at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17, in the Alice Peters Auditorium, PB 191.

Sterling will discuss the role of envy in the workplace. Sterling’s research focuses on the challenge of dealing with emotions at work, including disruptive emotions such as envy.

“I’m expecting this to be an interesting event,” said Dr. Andrew Fiala, Ethics Center director. “And I’m hopeful we’ll get a diverse audience. Softs skills and social and emotional factors are a growing focus. Sterling’s research is focused on those issues.”
