Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to analyze the relationship between the role related goodness of business managers and norms for combating various forms of discrimination. It is asked whether the claim that the first entails the other is correct. I begin by outlining an interpretation of the notion of managerial goodness and the thesis that to serve the purpose of business entails doing what is morally right. I then present the notion of discrimination and two basic reasons for considering it ceteris paribus wrongful. In connection to this a more complex understanding of discrimination labeled “tacit discrimination” is developed. Subsequently, it is asked whether striving for managerial goodness can reasonably be said to necessitate that action be taken to counteract discriminatory practices. It is argued that this is so only to a limited extent.
