Webinar (CPA Crossings): Ethics in the Real World with Dr. Toby Groves


An innovative session that taps the areas of neuroscience, psychology and biology to understand how science, emotion, and ethical decision-making interact. Instead of critiquing how our minds are supposed to work, this session delves into the fascinating world of how our minds actually work when we face difficult problems where a ‘best choice” doesn’t seem to exist. The talk will also explore why ethical codes have too often failed and how to improve individual and organizational ethical reasoning.

This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.
