27th Annual Ethics Day
Thank you for your interest in our 27th Ethics Day.
In 1992, the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce and South Lakes High School established a unique partnership - the first program of its kind - to take the entire senior class to the Sheraton Reston where they spend the day learning about ethical decision making and how it will affect their adult lives. Using a series of four different complex, but real-life scenarios, students are asked to review, discuss and reach ethical decisions for each scenario. Table Leaders, approximately 70 volunteers from our business community, lead a small group of 8-10 students through these scenarios and facilitate vibrant discussion. Ethics Day is a great volunteer opportunity! You will leave with energy and enthusiasm for what this next generation of business professionals will bring to the business world.
Become an active participant in one of the Chamber's most inspirational and rewarding events of the year. In a partnership between the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce and Reston's South Lakes High School, the entire senior class is taken off-site to the Sheraton Reston Hotel to spend a day learning about ethical decision-making and how it will affect their adult lives. Using a series of complex scenarios, students will be asked to review, discuss and make challenging ethical decisions.
As the Table Leader you will lead a small group of 8-10 students through different scenarios to facilitate and encourage vibrant discussion. Table Leaders are required to attend Ethics Day from 8am-3pm. In addition, you must attend one of the two mandatory training sessions at the Chamber Office in November:
**PLEASE NOTE: Even if this is not your first time participating in Ethics Day, you still need to attended one of the trainings. There have been a few changes from last year that you will need to be made aware of prior to the actual event.
