October’s Monthly Ethics & Compliance Education Series will bring you a thought provoking conversation about the relationship between the ethics we teach and how that translates into actions. Presented by Dr. Mark Meaney, Associate Professor and Executive Director of the Leeds School of Business’ Center for Education on Social Responsibility (CESR). CESR exists to prepare future leaders to confront social, environmental, economic, and ethical challenges faced by modern business.  The center has four focus areas, one of which is Business Ethics.

In this session, Dr. Meaney, will discuss:

  • Similarities and differences between ethics in higher education and the corporate world.
  • How to move ethical behavior beyond the paper Code of Conduct.
  • How do we continue the conversation about ethics? It does not stop after the classroom or a training.

We often think of ethics and integrity as “doing the right thing when no one is looking”. This seems easy enough, so why do people still decide not to act in an ethical manner? What do you do when you see someone behave in such a way? How do you help to create an ethical culture and remain steadfast when those around you are behaving in unethical ways?

Ample time for audience Q&A will be provided at the conclusion of the session.
