Ethics isn't some abstract concept or series of principles that can be compartmentalized into our work environment. Ethics is who you are - you either have them, or you don't. Participants will be inspired and entertained, as integrity-based cultures are explored, inherent character questions are considered, and common, everyday crises of conscious are unpacked. Focus will be on the very personal nature of ethics, and why it is impossible to separate ethics from the individual. Participants will be challenged to question what makes up the foundation of their ethical decisions, and will be provided tools for identifying their own core values.
The "Principles to Which We Aspire" portion of the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct will provide the backdrop for this interactive and lively session. While the session will be "scenario-free," real world case studies in bias, discourse, commonality, and values will be on parade. Participants will leave this session with an entirely new perception of ethics sessions and their own personal responsibility to their profession, those around them and themselves.
The format will be a hybrid of traditional presentation, interactive opportunities, and discussion. The two speakers have developed a "banter" style of presenting, where each one plays off of the other's content, creating a "build" to the session with payoffs. Speakers will trade off regularly to keep things lively, while also engaging the audience throughout the session.
Key topics include:
• Self-serving bias: how it affects objectivity and the presentation of planning theories and data.
• Diversity vs. division: one is a strength, the other is a weakness.
• Core values: they affect every decision you make, but how do you identify them?
• Integrity-based cultures: making the leap from fear of punishment to pride in knowing and doing what's right.
