    Behavioral Ethics (not DE Ethics)

"Darwinian" ethics emphasizes the survival of the fittest, and focuses on "fitness" as a way of thinking about ethical best practices. "Aristotelean" ethics emphasizes the "good life," and incorporates ethics into a way of thinking about, and living, a "good life." Which is more appropriate in today's workplace? This workshop examines real world cases through these two lenses. Participants will be invited to weigh in on their preferred approach to ethics.
