Many citizens and government officials see the need to strengthen ethics programs in their cities, towns, and counties. But how do you get started? Do you have to be a lawyer to understand and work through this process?
City Ethics has delivered many programs across the U.S. to help people change the ethical environment of their local governments. It is not just the drafting or improving of an ethics code that helps creates a better ethical environment. Workshops and seminars in the various areas of government ethics, as well as in ethical leadership, are also required.
Our experience can help your organization achieve a definite change for the better - a step toward an ethical culture that makes it difficult for people to be unethical - with tighter guidelines, greater understanding, and more oversight of high-risk areas.
