Making Moral Decisions: What's My Motivation?

Andrew Brei, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Philosophy, St. Mary's University

This webinar will present two different (but related) approaches to ethics. We will investigate various accounts of what makes actions right or wrong, both in general and focus on the sorts of situations that financial and technology professionals typically face. We will also attend to the subject of character and what makes a person good or evil. Our main objectives will be to develop a heightened awareness of the various motivators that exist in professional and personal contexts, and to sort the worthy from the unworthy.

Additionally, we’ll delve into what Congress is likely to do regarding tax policy, labor and employment law, immigration policy and environmental issues over the next two years.

The election results have ushered in major changes to Washington, which will mean major changes for clubs, their members and staff.
