Workplace Ethics

Wednesday 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Session Description

Most of us probably believe we’ll “do the right thing” when ethical questions arise. But sometimes the “right thing” isn’t so clear-cut and the ethical bar is set even higher for those working in the public sector. This presentation outlines workplace situations requiring a decision among several possible options – some perhaps more ethical than others. AGH’s Cindy McSwain will offer a framework to help guide ethical decisions and discuss how organizations can support and encourage an ethical environment.
