Ethical Professionalism: Ethics for the Workplace
We often think we know what right from wrong, but we can easily get confused when we actually have to do what we think is right. This presentation will look at ethics in business and how it has shaped the way in which our society operates on a day-to-day basis. It will explore the different definitions and theories of ethics, including where our own values and morals come from. Each participant will be put to the test in response to their own ethical behaviors, while reviewing real world examples.
