Knowing the right thing to do is not that hard. Doing the right thing in the face of pressure to do the wrong thing or at least look the other way can be very hard. In fact, ethical tragedies are often the result of people who sit silently on the sidelines afraid or uncertain of what to do about a transgression. In this session, speakers will provide an overview of GFOA’s Code of Ethics and apply the code to scenarios of ethical challenges that have occurred in real governments. Participants will learn a distinctive new approach to how to deal with the situations called “Giving Voice to Values,” which is focused on how to enact the values we already know. Attendees will also learn how to develop policies and create an environment and work culture based on these values for their own organization.
