Ethics and Wellbeing: Impacts & Strategies (Virtual)

Ethics and Wellbeing: Impacts & Strategies (Virtual)


Generally, we understand that unethical behaviour damages the reputation of both the organization and the perpetrator. Did you know that the negative impact of unethical behaviour extends beyond the perpetrator, the organization, and the victim? The evidence is clear; unethical behaviour is harmful to the wellbeing of people who have been exposed to it.

This course invites participants to consider not only how unethical behavior impacts an organizations and organizational culture, but also more specifically how unethical behaviour impacts the wellbeing of people. To this end, we will explore the prevalence of unethical behaviour in organizations, the impacts on personal wellbeing, challenges that may allow unethical behaviour to persist, and strategies that individuals and organizations might use when they encounter unethical behaviour or that they may use to support ethical behaviour and wellbeing.


  • Understand what research and various studies indicate about the various kinds of unethical behaviour that occur in organizations and the impact on individual wellbeing.
  • Consider strategies that individuals and leaders might use to ensure unethical behaviour is identified and addressed by the organization while protecting the reporters.
  • Identify strategies to support an ethics-based culture.
  • Explore related concepts such as Bystander Effect, Psychological Safety, and Speak Up Culture.

This session is intended for anyone interested in supporting ethical cultures and wellbeing.
