This is a two-day workshop that runs from 7:00am to 3:00pm Central Time.
The primary goal of this workshop is to create awareness and advance knowledge about challenges in business ethics and supply chain responsibility. Through readings, discussions, mini-cases and exercises, candidates will learn about a broad range of social responsibility factors, such as environmental concerns and "fair trade". We will also discuss social procurement policies and practices. The candidates will also be made aware of the means to quantify values to make the business case for going beyond being green.
Upon completion of this workshop candidates should be able to:
- Define "business ethics" and describe different perspectives on ethics
- Critique an organizational code of ethics and/or statement of ethics
- Discuss the various effects on social values and corporate ethical conduct

- Identify opportunities for their organizations in the circular economy
- Appreciate the value of having diversity in their supply chains
- Explain how social procurement is growing as a strategy in organizations
