Are Ethics Ruining Your Business?
Dr. Brad Allenby, President's Professor of Civil, Environmental, and Sustainable Engineering, and of Law, Arizona State University

In all too many cases, classes about ethics are usually taught by pretentious academics or philosophers with no idea of how the real world operates, and all of the challenges of trying to make a living. Brad Allenby will try to make some amends by presenting a few case studies which demonstrate just how difficult and ambiguous ethics can be in the real world, and suggesting some mechanisms that might help members of PDCA maintain their high standards in a competitive and difficult market.  You are encouraged to submit any challenges and/or complaints that you would like Dr. Allenby to discuss during his presentation to PDCA staff at events@piledrivers.org no later than Wednesday, July 29th. Submissions will be reviewed and discussed during the webinar.
