Program Details

Building Ethical Organizations With Inclusion Leadership

Key Objectives

To empower leaders to develop ethical inclusion practices.
To examine methods of fostering inclusion in your work environments
To understand the what, why, where, who, and how to be an ethical leader and adhere to a set of principles and values. These include integrity, respect, trust, fairness, transparency, and honesty.

Employees come to their workplace with a set of morals, values, and perspectives. Many organizations treat ethics training as a one-time event, often limiting it to the onboarding process. Most companies address ethics, by adopting a code of conduct. However, leadership has an ethical responsibility to cultivate a culture of inclusion. Ethical organizations are well known as the employer of choice, attract the best candidates, and less likely to have fewer scandals and employee grievances.

This session qualifies for Ethics credit for HRCI and CLE (Arkansas Courts). For HRCI, include the ethics-themed activity in your recertification plan and check the required “ethics affirmation box” to submit your recertification application.
