Ethical Decision Making - Webinar

Ethical Decision Making 1



Ethics are a system of moral principles that determine how one makes decisions. Some ethical decisions are easily made but others are more difficult and require careful consideration of ethical implications.

Studying ethics is critical to the success of every decision-maker.  By studying ethics, one further develops skills in determining and expressing one’s values and moral principles. 

This webinar further develops these skills using real-world scenarios including office setting, engineering design, field operations, financial, and personal life cases. Simulating scenarios allows participants to evaluate what they would do when faced with an ethical decision via group interaction and discussion.
