In Engineering Ethics: Accepting Gifts and Amenities , you'll learn ...
- A brief history and clear definition of bribery and how this concept applies to accepting gifts
- Methods for analyzing moral problems and determining what is right and wrong in various situations
- The role that common sense, discrimination, and moral deliberation play in making ethical decisions
- How to identify relevant criteria when faced with ethical dilemmas or choices
One of the most challenging areas of moral reasoning is deciding where to draw the line between what is permissible and impermissible. The matter becomes more difficult and interesting if we accept that sometimes there is no distinct line between the two. Rather than presenting us with a clear choice of black or white, many situations arise where the only appropriate answer is a shade of gray. In this live, interactive webinar we will examine specific case studies that bring to light the ethical aspects of such situations and illustrate methods you can use in your ethical decision making process.
Making difficult ethical decisions is an everyday reality for professional engineers. It has often been said that the first ethical dilemma a young engineer may face on the job is whether to accept gifts from a supplier courting his or her favor. How can a professional engineer judge right and wrong when it comes to accepting gifts and amenities from suppliers or others? This webinar will ask you to think through several scenarios in order to understand right from wrong in a range of situations.
