David Miller, PhD, M.Div.
serves as Executive Director of the Yale Center for Faith & Culture at Yale Divinity School, and as Assistant Professor of Business Ethics. David brings an unusual “bilingual” perspective to the academic world, having previously spent 16 years in international business and finance, living overseas for eight of those years as a senior executive, and as a partner in a private equity firm. He received his Ph.D. and M.Div. degrees from Princeton Theological Seminary and is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church. While doing his doctoral work, David co-founded The Avodah Institute and served as its president. David leads the Center’s “Ethics and Spirituality in the Workplace” program, whose mission is to help leaders integrate the claims of their faith with the demands of their work. He also teaches business ethics at Yale Divinity School and Yale School of Management.
David’s critically acclaimed book, God at Work: The History and Promise of the Faith at Work Movement, challenges business academics and executives, as well as theologians and clergy to think differently about integrating faith and work. In addition to his teaching, research, and theological work, David serves as an advisor to several corporate CEOs and senior executives on questions pertaining to ethics, values, and becoming a faith-friendly company. He is a frequent speaker at gatherings of business leaders, academic conferences, and church programs. His views are often cited in the media, including in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Fortune Magazine, NPR, and all the major TV news networks.
Workshop: God at Work?
Saturday, January 26
Santa Fe Room 3:30pm - 5:30pm
Is spirituality in the workplace a passing fad or here to stay? How does it differ from religion or faith at work? Is it career suicide to embark on a path that includes transcendent thinking with bottom line pressures. David Miller will share his research into these and other questions, as well as lessons learned from his advisory work with corporate executives.
