Ethical Leadership: What does this mean for my organization?

Presented by:

Lisa Akers, PhD, RDN, IBCLC, RLC, FAND, Program Chair, Union Institute, and University

with Jeanne Blankenship, MS, RDN, Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and 

Sabeen Adil, MD, IBCLC, International Lactation Consultant Association (ILCA)

Ethics is not often perceived as a “fun” topic of discussion, but it is such an important aspect of all organizations.  In fact, effective ethical leadership cultivates an ethical climate that is fully transparent and free from conflicts of interest.  Therefore, it is imperative to lay a solid ethical foundation for your organization to flourish.  In this presentation, participants will gain a better understanding of how the topic of ethics plays into various organizational types.  Participants will come away being able to differentiate between and among nonprofit laws and duties and how each of these effects the ethics of their organization. To bring the topic of ethical leadership to life, participants will experience authentic organizational case studies as presented by organizations outside of USBC.
