Andrew L. Urich, J.D., Oklahoma State University - Spears School of BusinessProfessor Urich tackled a topic we often take for granted, but at a time of rapid change requires a special focus, Ethics Awareness. The intersection of cultures when companies merge provides a unique opportunity to spend time reflecting on the importance of ethics on the effectiveness of an organization. Professor Urich’s keynote at the SGA Management Conference in San Antonio, Texas helped us with two principal challenges:

  • How do I really know if my own behavior is ethical?
  • How do I build and maintain the leadership skills proven to foster an ethical work environment?
