Curriculum Vitae

Anna Seppänen is a PhD student in theological ethics and social ethics. Seppänen is a member of CoPassion research group that examines compassion in working life and how it affects welfare and the sense of meaning at workplaces. In her PhD thesis she analyzes the ethical prerequisites of sustainable corporate volunteerism, addressing especially the topics of relationality and intersubjectivity in corporate volunteering. Seppänen is particularily interested in the interplay of prosocial individual-level phenomena - e.g. altruism, love, compassion, individual values - and wider social and societal phenomena, such as justice, social recognition and solidarity. In her future work she hopes to shed light on the role of corporations in promoting social justice in Finnish welfare system, which undergoes some substantial changes at the very moment. Besides CoPassion she also works in RIFISER research project (Responsible Investment and the Food Industry - Socio-ethical Reflections) where she examines how institutional investors may promote sustainability and justice through the implementation of their investment strategies. She uses conceptual, philosophical analysis as well as mixed-method empirical approach.
