Individuals' experiences at work can provide the opportunity for them to become a better person, in all aspects of their life. Instead of helping workers make more ethical decisions in the moment, organizations can and should create environments that help them become more ethical people in the long run.
In her talk, Maryam Kouchaki will present a bottom-up approach to ethics, focusing on what individuals can do for themselves to take ownership over their moral development at work. She will also talk about a top-down approach to helping workers develop moral character at work, focusing on what organizations can do to create a workplace environment conducive to ethical learning.

"It's About Time... Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. - G.M.(?)": Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at U-M (50+).< less
This study group will be online. Does time indeed fly (or flow)? What defines the arrow of time? Why can we remember the past but not the future? Is time, like space, continually being created?
These are some of the questions we'll ponder in this course, based on a Great Courses series by Laura Helmuth, editor in chief of Scientific American, "Examining the big questions of time". (Spoiler alert: we won't find answers to these questions.)
Instructor Craig Stephan is a retired industrial physicist who has led many previous OLLI courses including "The End of Time", "The Science of Climate Change", "Cosmology", and "Paleontology".
This study group will meet Tuesdays beginning January 25 through March 1.
Pre-registration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.
