Ethics Week Was A Great Success
Ethics week was held February 26-March 2. Throughout the week, students participated in various activities in the Perdue School of Business (PSB). Activities were held in the atrium of Perdue Hall as well as on the school’s social media pages. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Student Business Leaders set up and organized a table where students could answer questions about ethics to receive candy and a raffle ticket for a chance to win a food voucher and also a copy of Frank Perdue’s ethical will. On Monday, students spun the ethical trivia wheel to answer a question. On Tuesday, students decided whether a given dilemma was either moral or ethical.
On Wednesday, students were given an ethical word search and could return it when finished to be entered into a raffle. On Thursday, students signed the Ethical Pledge in the atrium with the help of Student Business Leaders. All through the week, students could also participate on the PSB’s Instagram account by liking and reposting quotes for a chance to win Perdue School swag. Daily ethical quotes and videos also were shared on the school’s Twitter and Facebook account, respectively.
On Friday, the school hosted Executive Speaker Series lecturer John Allen, who is a well-known and respected member of the business community. Allen, who is the vice president and manager of external affairs with Delmarva Power, spoke to PSB students about the importance of ethics in the workplace.
The final culminating event was a case competition where students could write a case solution to compete for $100 or three honorable mention prizes. The winners of the case competition were Gabriel Vera in 1 st place, Nelli Balkarova in 2 nd place and Paige Bryce in 3 rd. Overall, Ethics Week was a true success and brought increased awareness around the Perdue School of Business.
