March 25, 2010 - California State University, Bakersfield is hosting its inaugural Ethics Awareness Week (Monday, April 5, 2010 through Thursday, April 8, 2010). The theme for the week is From Classroom to Workplace, Bring your Ethics.
The purpose of this week-long ethical affair is to bring together local employers, CSUB students and faculty, and community members to increase the awareness and discuss the importance of ethics through participation in various workshops, presentations, and panel discussions. The event aims to support the University's Strategic Plan goal of "promoting a civil and collegial campus environment that values diversity and respect for differing views."
Included in the intriguing ethical events will be a presentation by Mr. Javier Lozano from Aera Energy LLC, who will discuss the transition of ethics from school to the workplace. On Tuesday, Ms. Maria Paine from Jim Burke Ford will provide a workshop entitled, "Laying the Ethical Groundwork?It's Your Responsibility." Then on Wednesday, we will learn the ethical guidelines for social networking from Mr. Matt Munoz, Web Editor of Bakotopia.com and Ms. Miranda Whitworth, Director of Information Services for Clear Channel Radio. Other events throughout the week will include an Academic Resource Fair and discussions and presentations on: Ethics of Online Teaching, Ethical Choices, Cyber-Plagiarism, and a panel discussion on Crisp and Cole's led by Ms. Gretchen Wennner from The Bakersfield Californian, Mr. J.R.Lewis from Karpe Real Estate, and Dr. John Emery, Dean of the School of Business and Public Administration.
The CSUB community has come together to make this event possible as we have professors such as Dr. Steven Daniels from Public Policy and Administration and Dr. Bruce Hartsell from Social Work who will be offering workshops. Dr. Christopher Meyers, Executive Director of the Kegley Institute of Ethics at CSUB will be facilitating both the panel discussions. CSUB will take an active role in the awareness week by leading a panel discussion on Time Management wherein they will interact with their peers.
To mark the end of our inaugural Ethics Week, CSUB has invited a panel of community leaders for a Q&A session to discuss ethics in their work environments. Included on this panel will be Chief Greg Williamson, Chief of Police of the Bakersfield Police Department, Ms. Della Hodson, President of the United Way of Kern County, Mr. Jay Rosenlieb from Klein, DeNatale, Goldner, Cooper, Rosenlieb & Kimball, and Mr. Daniel Nelson from Wells Fargo.
