Ethics 101: What Are The Rules?

OGC Webinar Series Logo

Date and Time



Event Description

As employees of the University of Texas, we have a high obligation for ethical conduct. Ethics dilemmas arise in a wide range of contexts: Can I accept that free lunch? Is that consulting job a conflict of interest? Can I hire my brother-in-law?

A working knowledge of the rules and concepts related to conflicts of interest, nepotism, gifts, and honoraria provides a strong foundation to tackle ethical challenges that appear more often than we might realize. While no one-hour presentation can make anyone an expert, this webinar will help you spot ethics issues and provide you with tools to address these issues as they occur.
