ID: 61023
Tuesday July 23, 2024 5:00PM - 6:00PM
Topics: Ethics + Professional Standards

Bounded ethicality explores the edges of ethical decision-making and the invisible borders that exist in our ethical judgment. In an entertaining and enlightening session, we will unveil surprising judgment errors we make when we face ethical dilemmas and search for the reasons behind them. We will explore areas of ethical decision-making where people consistently predict they will do the right thing but rarely do so. We will find out why people repeat stubborn errors of ethical judgment, and review steps that behavioral researchers have identified that can help us stop making these errors once and for all. We will identify ways to recognize our own errors and steps we can take to improve our ethical thinking. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.

The major topics covered in this course include:

  • Internal transparency
  • Implicit association
  • Concrete versus abstract processing
  • Temporal bias

Who will benefit: CPAs and other decision makers interested in developing a deeper understanding of their own ethical reasoning processes.
