Dear UCCS community,

What blind spots are leading you to make bad choices? We all have unconscious biases and psychological traps that we do not even realize. At UCCS, the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program offers opportunities for students, educators, and the community to explore how principle-based ethics can help navigate ethical decisions.  BLIND SPOTS is the topic for the 2022 Southern Colorado Ethics Summit on April 29 in Pueblo, Colorado. Learn how to improve ethical decision-making and overcome our blind spots with keynote speaker, Kevin McCarthy, Author of the bestselling book, BlindSpots – Why Good People Make Bad Choices!  Each school in the Southern Colorado Ethics Consortium, including UCCS, can invite eight students, four educators, and four business/community professionals.

All are invited attend in person or virtually an exciting event on WHISTLEBLOWER ETHICS: Tyler Schulz on Theranos, Integrity, and Resilience in Silicon Valley on TUESDAY, APRIL 12. Join us as we explore the ethics and challenges of whistleblowing in the modern business world with Tyler Shultz, who played an integral role in exposing the deceptions of the infamous Theranos fraud. Mr. Shultz’s remarks will be followed by a panel discussion on the legal, business & psychological aspects of whistleblowing.
