When it comes to the legal, moral and professional conduct related to the fulfillment of their professional responsibilities, it is safe to say that officers, officials, and employees are expected to act in an ethical manner regarding legal, moral and professional conduct. Yet there are countless examples of good people, people that are well intentioned, that make bad choices by taking one step on the slippery slope of unethical activity. And, once there, the slide into devastating consequences is often the result.   Using case studies this session will dive into insights around how pressure points can create the perfect storm for ethical people to fall into unethical choices. In addition, participants will gain insight about creating a culture of conversation around ethics and compliance at work and otherwise.

  • See and hear real life stories of public sector employees whose ethical lapses resulted in ethics investigations as well as fraud and criminal prosecution
  • Engage in an interactive and thoughtful discussion of the key factors that lead to unethical conduct and how “good” people go “bad”
  • Gain insight into lessons learned and takeaways from the consequences and aftermath of poor ethical decision-making

Presenters:

Jabu Sengova, Ethics Officer, City of Atlanta Ethics Office

Carlos Santiago, Deputy Ethics Officer, City of Atlanta Ethics Office

Jenna Wiese, Deputy Inspector General, Office of the State of Georgia Inspector General
