The Office of Ethics and Policy has been very busy this month with all our Global Ethics Month events! This month, our staff and interns have worked hard to organize an awesome series of discussions and events. Participants have had the opportunity to hear from experts on a number of topics ranging from ethical consumerism to sustainable travel!
