Doing Right By You

A report to supporters on 2013 at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics

Our mission in 2013, as always, was to promote the role of ethics in everyday life, providing practical tools for ethical living and action. But what does that mean on the ground, where real people encounter real ethical dilemmas? Here are highlights of how we put ethics into action this year. We thank you for your support and ask that you consider a contribution to help us carry this work forward in 2014.
