We are pleased to have Baroness O’Neill coming to speak on Thursday 7th November about the attributes that make somebody trustworthy, as part of the Legatum Institute’s Road to Character series.

Trustworthiness is becoming increasingly important for us as individuals and for our institutions as we navigate our way through the digital age. In her lecture at the Legatum Institute, she will be unpacking what it means to be trustworthy, and why it is such a significant characteristic for us to consider.

Baroness O’Neill is a highly respected philosopher and crossbench member of the House of Lords. She studied at Oxford and Harvard Universities, then went on to teach at Columbia and Essex Universities before becoming Professor of Philosophy at the University of Cambridge. She has written a number of books addressing a variety of philosophical issues, including trust, and has had roles as President of the British Academy and Chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

The Legatum Institute’s Road to Character series examines those values which most strengthen and enrich the wellbeing of people, communities and nations by inviting leading thinkers to discuss a character trait they most value. The series comprises a key part of the Legatum Institute’s Cultural Transformation programme which seeks to help the UK’s great institutions examine how they can make a significant contribution to the strength, integrity and health of our society.

Doors will open at 6pm, for a 6.30pm start. To register your interest to attend please email events@li.com.
