Ethics in Ethically Challenging Times

Architects face ethical dilemmas all the time in the course of practice, requiring that we choose among competing interests, conflicting perspectives, and contradictory information, all of which affects other people as well as ourselves.

This session, led by Thomas Fisher, Assoc. AIA, will examine some of the most difficult ethical questions people have encountered. How to respond to the unethical behavior of others, in a climate in which ethics seems not to matter to some, will also be explored. The virtual presentation features new ethical scenarios, so those who attended the session at the 2018 AIA MN Conference on Architecture can participate again and gain new learnings.
