Inclusive Ethics Initiative
UCLA Anderson recognizes ethics as central to transformative leadership. Unfortunately, polarizing tactics for managing ethical issues often suppress valuable differences in the pursuit of short-sighted “wins.” Effectively engaging a diverse workforce in driving everyday ethical behavior is essential for any firm or professional looking to reliably reap benefits from diversity.
With this broad benefit in mind, Anderson has launched the Inclusive Ethics Initiative to:
- Advance behavioral research regarding the nature of inclusive ethics and its enabling conditions.
- Develop innovative methods and tools for teaching inclusively ethical practices.
- Engage the public in surfacing needs, ideas, and implications for the practice of inclusive ethics.
What do we mean by “inclusive ethics”?
You can think of inclusive ethics as an approach to judgment, decision making and behavior that embraces diversity among stakeholders. It anticipates that members of a community may have a variety of fluid and evolving preferences, such that optimal decisions may be those that are continually informed by — and perhaps co-created with — stakeholders, rather than dictated top-down by distant, elite and exclusive authorities.
