During his talk at the Christian Scholars’ Conference, David Miller will explore pressing marketplace topics surrounding faith and work including global competition, ethics, diversity and social responsibility.
Before returning to school and completing his M.Div. and a Ph.D. in ethics from Princeton, David Miller worked for IBM in the USA and various equity firms in London, England, gaining 16 years’ worth of experience in senior executive positions in international business and finance.
He went on to help found the Yale Center for Faith & Culture, where he functioned in the roles of both executive director of the program and director of its Ethics and Spirituality in the Workplace Program. At the same time, Miller taught in Yale’s School of Management and the divinity school.
Miller currently works in his role as the founding director of Princeton University’s Faith & Work Initiative bringing his “bilingual” experience to the post. His book, God at Work, also reflects his bilingual concerns.
Miller also lectures in the Department of Religion at Princeton University and advises a number of corporate CEOs and senior executives on matters of ethics and faith at work.
