Beyond the Code: Ethics in the Real World

3:00 pm–4:40 pm ET

# of CPE Credits



This session delves into the fascinating neuroscience behind how our minds really work when we face conflicting motivations or difficult dilemmas for which there is no obvious best answer. Attendees will explore real-life dilemmas and learn effective cognitive processes to deal with those dilemmas as revealed by the latest research in neuroscience. We will draw on organizational, cognitive science, psychobiology, and even sports psychology to create an immersive experience and unveil the hidden ways our minds perceive and interpret problems.


Attendees will learn * Effective reasoning approaches to process motivational conflicts, solve difficult ethical and moral dilemmas, and understand cultural influences that impact ethical reasoning


* Learn how to resolve competing motivations * Recognize ethically relevant behavioral cues at the individual, team, and organizational levels * Learn the cognitive tools to combat bias and situation blindness * Hear the methods that help teams debate problems effectively * Understand the science behind cultural norms
