In 2014, more and more Austin organizations supported the Ethics in Business & Community movement, and the idea that doing the right thing is good business. 2015 award nominees had the opportunity to find out more about the program, ask questions and receive feedback at the EiBC nomination seminar, held at City Hall. Andrew Cooper spoke to the group about the importance of the award, followed by a detailed overview of the nomination process by Dr. Lynette Gillis of Concordia University. A special thanks to EiBC Director Scholley Bubenik for coordinating such a successful event!
A new program called Ethics in Youth Education also launched, with an initial presentation to students at McNeil High School. This program focuses on teaching students about the importance of ethics in the business community they are preparing to join. The program will provide an ethics certification for future employers to see on the students’ resumés. Stay tuned!
