The Event Center
4040 N. Lincoln Blvd, Oklahoma City, OK 73106


Recommended for 1 CPE in Non-technical Behavioral Ethics at the basic level.
Program is suitable at the basic level for individuals who have routine interactions with others that could potentially lead to contentious conversations. OK Ethics makes no guarantees as it is up to the individual practitioner to determine relevance to their specific area of practice.



“President Pierson will discuss how working with three distinct stakeholders, students, faculty, and staff, at a mid-size public university has advanced her understanding of what ethical behavior looks like in practice and explain how the different perspectives of each population creates challenges in the university’s commitment to transparency, efficiency, and academic excellence.”


I will use current research to support my story and may even have some data that aligns with current research on ethical behavior and “employee voice.”
