Dear Colleagues,

Please see and share the following announcement:

Training Seminar for Economists on Ethics, Integrity, and Responsible Leadership
(Click here for the announcement in Chinese)

The Association for Integrity and Responsible Leadership in Economics is offering a full-day training seminar in Chicago on Sunday, January 8, 2017. The seminar is independent of the annual meetings of the Allied Social Science Association (ASSA), but it is convenient for those who may already be in Chicago attending the ASSA meetings. (The seminar will take place about four blocks away from the main ASSA conference hotel, in the magnificent Chicago Cultural Center.) For those who plan to travel immediately after the seminar, space will be available to store bags. (The cost of the seminar is $95, or $50 for students.)

The same seminar was held in February 2016, in Washington D.C., the day before the annual meetings of the Eastern Economic Association. It was endorsed by the Eastern Economic Association and by the National Economists Club, and it received highly favorable reviews. Several organizations sent their employees to the seminar to meet their annual training requirements in leadership and ethics, and seminar attendees accordingly receive a certificate of expertise. 

Not only will the seminar provide a wide range of insightful presentations, but will engage the audience in provocative and interactive discussions about some of the most challenging issues that economists, in all fields, face today.

Featured Topics:

  • Ethics Is More Fundamental Than Institutions (McCloskey)
  • The Ethical Responsibilities of Economists as Researchers, Teachers, and Policy Advisers (DeMartino)
  • How Government Agencies Promote Ethics, Scientific Integrity, and Responsible Leadership (Groshen, Hall, and Moyer)
  • The Ethical Quandary of Positive Versus Normative Economics (Colander)
  • Ensuring Scientific Integrity in Real-World Policy Analysis (Simon)
  • An Insider's View of the Academic Job Market: What Job-Market Applicants Should Know (Sawyer)
  • Ensuring the Responsible and Valid Use of Statistics in Economics (Ziliak)
  • Ethics, Integrity, and Responsible Leadership in Financial Institutions (Anderson)
  • Standing Tall and Upholding Scientific Integrity When Others Tell You, “You Just Don’t Get It.” (Payson)
Notes about the eventThough it starts at 8:30 AM, it is recommended that people arrive between 8:00 and 8:20 to find the room in the Chicago Cultural Center, to secure the seats they want, etc. Space will be available for bags, for those who are traveling immediately after the seminar. From about 12:00 to 1:00 PM the seminar will break for lunch. Lunch will not be served as part of the seminar in order to allow the event to be much more affordable, and to enable people to have other lunch plans. The event ends at 5:00 PM, but those who need to leave the seminar a bit early may do so and still receive their training certificates.

It is very possible that this event will be sold out, so you should register early to guarantee a seat.
