Ethics Summit

2024 UCLA Anderson Ethics Summit

Should some employees be allowed to work remotely even if others can’t?

The UCLA Anderson Inclusive Ethics Initiative is proud to invite current Anderson students to participate in this year’s Ethics Summit! Recognizing that transformative leaders must effectively manage complex ethical issues when stakeholders have diverse perspectives and preferences, the annual Ethics Summit provides participants with an opportunity to rise to this challenge, honing skill in a community of peers and experts.

The 2024 Ethics Summit is structured as a two-part case competition. In the first part — a workshop — teams were given the opportunity to develop inclusive skill for addressing an ethical leadership challenge. In the second part — a full-day in-person program with two rounds of judging — teams will propose case solutions for an ethical leadership dilemma: Should some employees be allowed to work remotely even if other's can't?


This year, there are 14 competing teams, with four to five members each. They represent the Full-Time MBA, Fully Employed MBA, Executive MBA and Master of Science in Business Analytics programs.

Prize Money for Case Competition

Beyond the considerable value of the learning and competition experience itself, substantial prize money for the case competition will be offered:  

  • First prize: $10,000
  • Second prize: $5,000
  • Third prize: $2,500


The Ethics Summit welcomes attendance from UCLA Anderson students, staff, faculty and alumni. Please register below to express your interest in attending either in person or receiving the livestream links.
