The purpose of the Princeton Faith & Work Initiative is to generate intellectual frameworks and practical resources for the issues and opportunities surrounding faith/religion/spirituality and work.
The Initiative investigates the ways in which the resources of various religious traditions and spiritual identities shape and inform engagement with diverse workplace issues as ethics, values, vocation, meaning, purpose, and how people live out their religion/spirituality in an increasingly pluralistic world. The Initiative explores pressing marketplace topics, including ethics, global competition and its ramifications, wealth creation and poverty, diversity and inclusion, conflicting stakeholder interests, and social responsibility.
The Faith & Work Initiative accomplishes its mission through a mixture of research, teaching, lectures, and conferences, and other programs geared toward students, academics, and leaders in the marketplace. The Initiative draws on the resources found in many of the world's great religious traditions and teachings, as well as on interdisciplinary insights and dialogue with a wide range of thought leaders, as it develops scholarly frameworks and practical resources to engage constructively the issues and opportunities surrounding faith and work.
