Please join us for a dinner meeting on “How organizational culture and strategy can influence good people’s engagement in unethical behavior” with speaker Camelia Fawzy, DM,MBA, Senior Management Consultant, Researcher, Training Design and Facilitator, Coach.

Learning Objectives and Program Content: This presentation is rooted in the assumption that most people have the capacity to engage in both ethical or unethical decision making. The path employees pursue when faced with an ethical dilemma depends not only on their capacity to think ethically but also, and maybe more importantly, on the organizational culture and structures that guide their decisions. Together we will examine:

  • Legal but unethical. Sounds familiar? Individual backgrounds and the capacity to address ethical dilemmas effectively
  • Ethics- key theories/philosophies affecting our frame of mind. Exercise
  • Organizational culture and climate that empowers engagement in ethical behavior
  • Leaders’ role in developing organizational strategy and structures that facilitate ethical decision making


Program Level: Basic

Field of Study: Personal development

Instructional Delivery Method: Group Live

CPE: 1 credit hour

***Plan to come early for ‘Pinot with the President’ from 5:15-6pm at the Maggiano’s first-floor bar for happy hour.***
