Irvine High School students presented their final Ethics Forum projects to IUSD Board Members Lauren Brooks and Sharon Wallin, and to business and community leaders during the Greater Irvine Chamber Business and Workforce Development Committee meeting on March 19. The presentations were the final projects of the semester-long Ethics Forum program, created for students by the Business and Workforce Development Committee in partnership with Irvine Unified School District and Webster University, Irvine Metro Campus.
This innovative program introduces students to the process of ethical decision-making, using common questionable and/or ethical dilemmas to determine criteria and to respond appropriately. The students learn why critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creative problem solving are essential to ensure successful situational outcomes.
The Business and Workforce Development Committee works to educate, inform, retain, grow, and expand existing and start-up businesses in Irvine. Through task forces and primary research, the committee provides solutions to business challenges and issues.
