Joan Dubinsky, former director of the United Nations Office of Ethics, will share her expertise with the Upstate. She will speak about the vitriolic attacks that have become commonplace in today's political climate, what distinguishes ethical leadership from other kinds of leadership, where current global leaders fall on the ethical leadership scale, and why it matters.
