Speaker: Dan Powers (COO, Children's Advocacy Center)
Taking The High Road: Ethical Challenges We Face Every Day.
Why do we need Ethics every year? Because people keep messing up, it should not be that difficult to follow the rules. Ethical decision-making is evaluating and choosing among alternatives in a manner consistent with ethical principles. Ethical principles are the fundamental ground rules of decision-making, not just factors to consider. We will discuss this concept and address a model to avoid unjust harm to yourself or others daily.
