Ethics Week returns this year with a focus on navigating ethics at Georgia Tech and beyond. One of Georgia Tech’s core values, “We act ethically,” guides our priorities every day, and while ethics is a year-round priority, Ethics Week puts a spotlight on all the various ways our campus engages in ethical decision making. 

This year’s events, taking place Nov. 7 – 11, will be a mix of scheduled online presentations and in-person events. Campus experts and guest speakers will join the Office of Ethics and Compliance to showcase ethics in a variety of ways.

“Ethics Week is a great opportunity to highlight the incredible experts across the Institute who can offer perspectives about the importance of ethical decision-making in all that we do,” said Danette Joslyn-Gaul, general counsel and vice president for Ethics, Compliance, and Legal Affairs. “Although Ethics Week is just one week, I hope that it will offer the campus community a greater connection and understanding of the Institute’s core values, as well as identifying resources and pathways for support to apply these lessons into the world every day.”

Below is a list of a few highlighted events.
