Last week’s 2nd Annual Somma Integrity First Intersection Navigating the Challenges ethics workshop was a success! Over 80 SBUS students, SBUS faculty and staff joined together for an engaging discussion of ethics and group case analysis exercise. Thanks to the following students in Professor Grim’s Advanced Labor Management Relations class who served as group facilitators: Jason Beadle, James Biedrzycki, Brennon Dauginikas, Rehema Emanuel, Sean Gergacs, Jake Hayes, Kylie Jorden, Jordan Kristek, Jamie Kusevich, Adam Mills, Evan Penner, Michael Renda, Ryan Schwartzel and, Lauren Wagenhoffer.
At the end of the case exercise, it was difficult to select only one group from the outstanding case analyses submitted; instead faculty identified two groups that developed insightful analyses of the ethical dilemmas and suggested feasible and relevant recommendations. Congratulations to the following students who worked in these groups: Nicole Masciola, Sarah Gordon, Marcus Paxton, Cody Redmond, Roberto DaSilva, Melissa Cleis, Heather Niewierski, Deborah Naples, James Biedrzycki, Carissa Smith and Rehema Emanuel
