Albers Ethics Week

Albers Ethics Week is a unique program that invites dozens of guest speakers from the greater Seattle-area business community for an intensive, week-long examination of ethical issues in business. Guests appear in classrooms across the Albers School curriculum, addressing ethical issues in areas such as accounting, finance, data analytics, marketing and human resource management. In addition to these classroom visits, the Center hosts public events centered on a theme.

The Center for Business Ethics will host Albers Ethics Week on May 13-17, 2019 and will feature public events centered on the theme Ethics and the Rise of Artificial Intelligence.
