“Giving Voice to Values” (October 30, 2013): Event Materials
EPAC held a half day workshop in Ottawa on 30 October 2013 on the Giving Voice to Values orientation of Dr. Mary Gentile.
One of the most significant ethical risks faced by organizations today is that employees will not speak up and raise concerns in the workplace when it is critical that they do so.
The Ethics Practitioners’ Association of Canada welcomed Dr. Mary Gentile, Ph.D., educator and well-known author of the award-winning book, “Giving Voice To Values: How To Speak Your Mind When You Know What’s Right” (Yale Univ. Press, www.MaryGentile.com).
Drawing on both the actual experience of practitioners as well as cutting edge research, Dr. Gentile says the Giving Voice to Values (GVV) framework fills a crucial gap in our understanding of how to enable ethical practice in organizations. Rather than a focus on ethical analysis, GVV focuses on ethical implementation and asks the questions: “What if I were going to act on my values? What would I say and do? How could I be most effective?”
