Join us on Wednesday, October 17, 2019 for:
The Principles of An Ethical Human:
Ethics! Exciting. Right?
…Umm, not usually.
Why is that? Is it because the we talk about ethics we tend to talk about how we have them, we need to abide by them, and anyone who doesn’t is a bad fundraiser? Well, ya, there is that.
But wait…
What if we take it up a notch. Actually, a whole bunch of notches. Acting ethically, thinking ethically and responding ethically is about more than reading and adhering to written ethical standards (yes, it is about that as well). Way more. As participants in AFP Global’s first ever ever international Ethics Month in October, AFP Calgary and Area will be hosting a facilitated conversation on the principles that underpin all ethical behaviour. The format for this session has been specially designed to elicit and encourage participation by introverts and extroverts alike. Using the very best in group creation technology, this session will not be your Grandpa’s ethics seminar.
