    Why Do Good People Do Bad Things?

    Date: November 18, 2021

    Time: 8:00 – 10:00 am CST 

    Speaker: David Schultz – Hamline University

    Credits: 2 PDH and/or 2 AIA CES LU (AIA Course #MCC111821)

    Registration Link: https://cvent.me/vwGPBx

    Description: Why do good people and organizations act unethically? Architects and engineers may confront ethical dilemmas in many forms during their professional practice, especially in the public arena. Many think that only unethical people do bad things, and that ethical people generally do not do bad things. However, the reality is that is often not the case, and this presentation will discuss why good or ethical people often act unethically. In this program, attendees will examine the Minnesota Rules of Professionalism and Ethics and examine examples of ethical dilemmas in professional practice. Specific case studies will be used to provide a foundation for an analysis regarding how the fostering of ethical diversity and thinking about one's personal ethics within organizations can prevent the slippery slopes that lead to administrative evil or unethical behavior.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Understand the Minnesota rules of ethics and professionalism.
    2. Examine examples of ethical dilemmas in professional practice.
    3. Learn how to foster ethical diversity and think about one's personal ethics within an organization.
    4. Understand why good or ethical people often act unethically and how organizations can prevent unethical behavior.

Whittington award for excellence in public affairs teaching, David is the author of more than 30 books and 150+ articles on various aspects of American politics, election law, and the media and politics, and he is regularly interviewed and quoted in the local, national, and international media on these subjects.
