Leadership in Government Ethics

Thursday, Dec. 1, 2011

Ethics is not just about following rules; it's about core values, said Judy Nadler, senior fellow in government ethics, addressing a recent conference in Dallas, sponsored by the Cary M. Maguire Center for Ethics & Public Responsibility in collaboration with the Southern Methodist University Cox School of Business.

Further, she argued, "it's not just about knowing your core values but also about having the courage to actuallys stick to those values and speak hard truths."

Nadler was one of four participants in a panel on "Ethical Leadership and Values."
