Irvine Unified Students to Present Ethics Forum Projects to Greater Irvine Chamber Committee
Wednesday, February 13, 2019
Eight teams from a total of 28 students from Irvine High School will present their final Ethics Forum projects to business and community leaders during the Greater Irvine Chamber Business and Workforce Development Committee meeting, on Tuesday, March 19, 4 - 6 p.m. Chamber members and guests are invited to attend the meeting, which will be held at the Chamber, located at 36 Executive Park, Suite 100.
The presentations serve as the final piece of the semester-long Ethics Forum program, created for students by the Business and Workforce Development Committee in partnership with Irvine Unified School District and Webster University, Irvine Metro Campus. The program is intended to teach students by introducing, instructing, and promoting the process of ethical decision making, using common questionable and/or ethical dilemmas to determine criteria and to respond appropriately. The students learn why critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creative problem solving are critical to ensure successful situational outcomes.
The Ethics Forum pilot program is led by Brian Dozer, D.Mgt., director of Webster University, Irvine Metro Campus. Dozer also co-chairs the Business and Workforce Development Committee.
The Business and Workforce Development Committee works to educate, inform, retain, grow, and expand existing and start-up businesses in Irvine. Through task forces and primary research, the committee provides solutions to business challenges and issues.
