Ethics is a much-discussed topic today. The public expects organizations to conduct their affairs in an ethically and socially responsible manner. It is time for engineers to expand their influence on their projects. Engineers have a responsibility not only to act ethically, but to also influence their constituents to act in a responsible manner. Participants in this meeting will explore a test case study and participate in a Q&A session that will uncover areas that you must consider when ethics are being questioned.
