Ethics Now

Ethics Now
Conversations about ethics in everyday life.

EthicsNOW was born of the desire to serve the public during these historic times. The world has always been full of ethical questions…but many are coming to the forefront and new questions are arising.  As an advocacy, research and education organization, we have been involved in the push for an enhanced ethical culture in government and public life. We felt the need and ability to provide a forum dedicated to discussing the ethical issues that are arising for everyone in this time.  With knowledgeable and experienced guests joining the host, programs will run the gamut from discussions on the ethics of campaigning and holding elections; medical ethics (from both patient and hospital point of view); the ethics of public agencies continuing to provide essential services (courts, city government, prisons, etc.); to the ethical concerns of small and large businesses with regard to employees and the public.
