Have you ever considered the ethical dilemmas the come with ever-changing technology? Do you know your ethical "blind spots?" In this session, I will challenge your thoughts on ethical behavior - both within your organizations and within your personal lives. Are you an "everyday ethicist" or a "rationalizer?" And are you ready for the new challenges we are about to face as a society when I comes to technology and ethics? Photoshop can't help. I can.
After completing this session, the learner will: - Learn how and why technology is complicating the issue of ethics - Learn the nature of “blind spots” and why we overestimate our ability to do what is right and sometimes do the wrong thing unknowingly - Learn the specific nature of blind spots including the complexities with technology, incentives, and relationships - Learn actions that can be implemented to reduce the likely of ethical failures
