Ethics training is not training for ethics


NY’s new governor is instituting ethics training for state officials. If this is like other such programs, it will be a course in avoiding conflicts of interest, an important point but not real ethics training. Ethics training needs to be on-going and directed at all aspects of ethics. This requires periodic discussions based on ethical decision-making.

Ethics isn’t about having the right answer but having the right attitude.
