Social Agreements: Moral Frameworks Series

We’re continuing our moral frameworks series today with a discussion about social agreements. Instead of breaking down a workplace ethics case, we’re looking behind the scenes and discussing one of the major moral frameworks that Andy uses to think through moral cases. In his moral reasoning workshops, he usually takes participants through six main frameworks used in ethics. Today, he and Kate discuss social agreements. Stayed tuned for more discussions about each of the frameworks!
