This session will dive into the ethical expectations and obligations of public sector executives, managers, and employees - legal, moral, and practical. The interactive session will provide a framework for ethical decision-making, and provide tools for analyzing various scenarios that may confront public sector actors. Participants will confront fact-based scenarios and quandaries that arise in public service, and be asked to navigate the ethical issues that arise therefrom. Specific issues discussed and analyzed will include conflicts of interest; accepting gifts or favors; and, dealing with lobbyists and special interests. “Bright line” legal rules will be discussed, as well as nuanced ethical “norms” and culture in public sector work. Through this one-day course, participants will learn to better understand the relationship between ethical behavior and the overall success of public sector work. Finally, the session will look into how public sector workers are held accountable for ethical behavior. Go to https://publicpolicy.uconn.edu/collaborative/ for more information.
