The Institute for Global Ethics (IGE) is excited to announce a pair of
events to be held on May 28th-29th at the Discovery Building, which houses
Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, where Anthony J. Gray, IGE's President and CEO, holds an academic
appointment as a
Distinguished Scholar. The Ethical Fitness® Seminar on Wednesday May 28th serves as a prerequisite
for the Train the Trainer course, which concludes on Thursday, May 29th.
Participants who complete both courses will be certified to lead IGE's
Ethical Fitness Seminar, a concise methodology for improving ethical decision-making.
"We're tremendously excited to bring this training to my hometown
of Madison." said Gray. "It's a useful tool for exploring
some of the more challenging questions presented in moral philosophy,
that being not what is right vs. wrong, but rather how to reason ones
way to determining which may be the higher right."
The Ethical Fitness Seminar is a fast-paced informational program that,
through group exercises and personal anecdotes, gives participants the
tools to handle the challenging, diverse ethical questions presented in
the modern world. Inspired by the book,
How Good People Make Tough Choices, and honed over decades of research and testing, IGE's method aims
to communicate the strong conceptual foundation underlying every ethical choice.
The Train the Trainer Workshop helps prepare participants to lead the
Ethical Fitness Seminar on their own, in the process developing their
group-facilitation, leadership, and public-speaking skills. By exploring
diverse points of view and analyzing class examples in greater depth,
trainers gain the insight and familiarity with ethical principles necessary
to guide others through the classroom experience.
IGE Master Trainer Martin Taylor will facilitate both events. Taylor began
directing the Ethical Fitness Seminar program in 1994, and, even after
twenty years of seminar groups, he remains "intrigued by the power
of the seminar, gratified by the results, and is still surprised by its
Seminar leaders are the backbone of IGE. Once participants complete the
workshop, IGE will continue to provide support services, including telephone
consultations from senior personnel and further, individualized training
sessions. If you have any questions regarding either seminar, please call
