Engage in Ethics - December 2021

Dear UCCS community,

As we continue to rise out of the COVID-19 crisis, the task of building and sustaining ethical cultures is even more critical than ever before. Crisis situations can bring out the best in our leadership. The organizations that have strong ethical cultures have navigated these difficult waters and are outperforming the competition.

Susan Divers, Senior Advisor, LRN Corporation said, “Mission, purpose, and values are not statements to hang on the wall but real tools that provide critical guidance and timely direction.”

We continue to see amazing events and engagement activities here at UCCS and across the Southern Colorado Ethics Consortium. These efforts are keeping ethics at the forefront and providing our future leaders with the tools to take on the most daunting challenges.

In November, the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program at UCCS College of Business offered multiple opportunities to gain experience and hone skills on ethics and integrity in the workplace. To highlight two:

  • Ethics in Cybersecurity event hosted by Dr. Andrea Little-Limbago, Alexander White and Jacqueline Muna Musitiwa Esq. on how ethics comes into play on an international scale and how ethics challenges across the world are contributing to a need for higher vigilance and awareness.
  • November Ethics Roundtable, we heard from Colin McAllister, Assistant Professor, Visual and Performing Arts, as he discussed implementing DFEI principles in a wide variety of musical settings between branding, performers, and intellectual property.

How can you keep the momentum moving forward in ethics?

Looking forward to more opportunities to engage in ethics!
