7th Annual Moral and Ethical Leadership Conference
#GlobalEthicsDay - Join us and celebrate Global Ethics Day!
To further our mission to “promote moral and ethical leadership,” the Salt Lake Chapter of the BYU Management Society (BYUMS) held its inaugural Moral and Ethical Leadership Conference (MEL) in Salt Lake City, UT seven years ago. Drawing from business, government, and education leaders year after year, its purpose is to provide the inspiration, education, and connections that our attendees need to explore the role of morals and ethics in a globalized world.
We will hear from scholars on ethics (details below) and will have a giveaway of a signed Jersey from 3-time Defensive Player of the Year, Rudy Gobert as well as prizes including AirPods, an apple watch, and more!
*October 20th is also the the Carnegie Council's Global Ethics Day! Share highlights from the day, and tag #GlobalEthicsDay2021 Learn more here.*
