Building Community Capacity: AFOA Canada Workshop on The Politics of Ethical Decision Making for Elected Leaders

The Politics of Ethical Decision Making for Elected Leaders workshop will take place in Vancouver, BC on October 24 & 25, 2012.

This two day workshop was designed specifically for elected Aboriginal leaders and focuses on the vital role that ethics plays in their daily lives and the importance of ethical leadership in an Aboriginal setting. The workshop covers rights, responsibilities and ethics, how they interact, and how each influences how Aboriginal elected officials carry out their day to day jobs. It looks at common situations faced in elected positions where ethical issues are at stake, examines critical questions leaders must ask when wanting to make an ethical decision and outlines the essentials for creating an ethical work environment.

Topics include:

  • What is meant when discussing ethics, values, morals and ethical behaviour in relation to governments, and what unique ethical situations are faced by elected officials?
  • Ways of regulating ethical behaviour and the importance of a Code of Ethics.
  • A focus on ethics in Aboriginal settings and the importance of strong leadership in creating an ethical Nation.
  • What are the differences between rights and responsibilities, and the significance to Aboriginal leaders of making decisions using rights as the measure?
  • A framework for making ethical decisions.
  • Common reoccurring ethical dilemmas that elected officials face on a regular basis.
