Business and Ethical Leadership Conference

Lead with ethics.

Ethical leadership is a critical business skill. It is positively related to job satisfaction and engagement, organizational commitment and decreases exit intentions. Multiple studies show that “moral intelligence” is an important–if not the most important–component in effective leadership. Student participants will engage in interactive workshops that help to develop their ability for ethical reasoning in a business context.
