Olivia Graham, JD, will kick off the series, with a lecture focusing on Ethics and the reasons good people often do bad things. In “The Ethics Minefield: The Role of the Ethics Office in Global Organizations,” Olivia will share her experience as Ethics Officer for the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), a UN agency headquartered in Rome. A former JAG and member of the National Board of Girl Scouts of the USA, Olivia will discuss real world examples of ethical dilemmas, the reasons for unethical behavior and how organizations operating across cultures can create programs to ensure their members maintain ethical standards.
This event, and other lectures in this series, are open to the public. This series is one of a number of special initiatives being organized in Italy to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of Girl Scouts by Juliette Low. We hope you will join us in celebrating!
