Everyday job decisions can include ethical issues for technical professionals. These decisions can enhance or destroy confidence, trust, creativity, teamwork, stress, joys or regrets, and even your job. This presentation will describe several of the situations, and the tradeoffs, that I, or my co-workers, experienced during our careers. The objective is to enhance your response to situations as they occur in the future. Attendee discussion is encouraged.
