Updated Jul 31, 2019

Course Introduction 

Everyone wants to behave in an ethical manner in the workplace. Behaving ethically benefits both the organization and its employees. However, research tells us that even when we think we are on our best behavior, our humanness and biases show. Dolly Chugh, associate professor at New York University, Stern School of Business and author of Ethical Learning: Releasing the Moral Unicorn, shares her expertise on creating an ethical business environment.

In this course, Chugh discusses various ethical issues. She defines bounded ethicality and compares it to bounded rationality. She talks about how we can be biased in our own favor even when we think we are acting ethically, and the effect of human bias on organizations and how they function. She offers advice for organizations wanting to foster collaborative efforts and talks about things to consider during negotiations, including prioritizing concerns and goals. She discusses how marriage structure relates to workplace behavior, particularly its fallout on how women are treated in business. Chugh also discusses the meaning of “implicit social cognition”.
