06-036 Audio CD: SYMPOSIUM: Everyday ethics for the food scientist: Ethics in research, education and the workplace

Details

We are continually being asked to make ethical decisions in our research and the workplace as well as in our personal lives. However, we often do not have the background knowledge or resources to make the appropriate ethical decisions required of us. There have been many examples of businesses making wrong choices because they are trying to be on top, and the outcomes paint a harsh and problematic picture of what can happen when ethics are neglected (Enron, for example). Similarly, individuals are confronted with day-to-day decisions in which personal values may conflict with those of the organizational norms of their business or institution. Speakers at this symposium will address some of the latest ethical issues and concerns, resources available for teaching ethics, best practices in the classroom and how students can implement decision-making strategies into their everyday lives based on sound ethical judgment.
