Ethics are the principles, values and beliefs that define what is right and what is wrong behavior. Ethical challenges arise at all levels of leadership and in all types of organizations – for-profit, nonprofit, government – and involve a complex relationship between individual character and cultural influences. The Ethical Leadership webinar will explore what this means; and how the relationship between individual character and cultural influences plays out in the daily interactions in organizations.

Ethical Leadership in the Non-Profit Sector

According to the publisher of Business Ethics magazine, the "debate has shifted from whether to be ethical to how to be ethical." What does that look like in the non-profit sector? How do top managers interpret and uphold the values of the organization and set the cultural tone? They are role models in terms of both words and actions, although what they do is far more important than what they say. Join in the discussion. We will look at examples of decisions made by nonprofit leaders through an ethical lens, discuss core values and personal beliefs and come up with a sample code of ethics for all organizations to abide by.
