ACFE Sydney – July Webinar Event
Thursday 23 July 2020 (12:30pm – 1:30pm)
We are not as ethical as we think we are. All evidence points to the fact our society is not getting any better ethically. The number and variety of recent scandals proves our culture has changed in the last half-century to one with a greater emphasis on self: “The Big Me.” I truly believe most people desire to become more ethical, but the first step in changing any behavior is selfawareness and a greater understanding of the problem. In this session, we will explore the role of “The Ethical Rationalizer” and why we tend to consciously or unconsciously rationalize away our unethical behavior. Then we will shift our focus to “The Everyday Ethicist™,” and learn how to adopt values and behaviors that will improve our society’s ethical culture, one person at a time.
