Thursday, September 15, 20168:00 AM - 8:00 PM CERL Presents - Producing Leaders of Character and Integrity: Instilling Values into Public Life
This symposium will focus on concepts of ethical leadership and explore the contribution that educational, military, political, professional and business institutions can make towards the development of ethical leaders. CERL’s contribution to this topic reflects its focus on rule of law values: where individuals have internalized respect for the rule of law their stewardship is both ethically grounded and maximally effective.
8:00AM – Registration and Breakfast
8:45AM – Welcoming remarks: Ted Ruger, Dean of University of Pennsylvania Law School and Claire Finkelstein, Director of the Center for Ethics and the Rule of Law (CERL)
9:00– 10:15 AM Panel 1: Character and the Rule of Law
How can respect for the rule of law be cultivated in our future leaders and how can institutional cultures foster that cultivation?
10:30 – 11:45AM Panel 2: Inculcating virtue: Education and Modern Leadership
What role does character have to bear in what constitutes ethical leadership and how much do situations, environments and organizations encourage the optimal manifestation of those dispositions?
12:45 – 2:00PM Panel 3: Military Leadership and Character Development
Can the military model serve as a basis for the promises and perils of leadership cultivation and are the virtues we seek to cultivate in military leaders the same as those we should encourage in the rest of society?
2:15 -3:30PM Panel 4: The Dark Side of Leadership
Qualities that lead to high success in the corporate and political world often are the antithesis of ethical leadership qualities. Is this a distinction between the real and faux leader or are corporate and political virtues often vices?
3:45 -5:00PM Panel 5: Dilemmas in Corporate and Political Leadership
What are the distinctions in the character traits and duties of a business leader and a political leader? Are there times of national security that require a leader to act unethically and are personal failing relevant in assessing ethical leadership?
5:15 – 6:45 Keynote Address – Judge Sergio Moro, Brazil
Named as one of the most influential people in the world by Time and Fortune Magazines. Through his prosecution of corruption reaching the upper echelons of Brazil’s business and political leadership, Moro has emerged as a central leader in the emergence of rule of law governance in Brazil.
Cocktail Reception to follow.

Thursday, September 22, 20164:00 PM - 6:00 PM CERL presents - WHYY Voices in the Family: Responding to Trauma
We can’t always protect ourselves from catastrophic personal events such as domestic violence or sexual abuse, but what we can do is understand how it affects us. In our search for solutions we’ll explore Post-Traumatic Stress treatment in both civilian and military behavioral health.
In a partnership with University of Pennsylvania Law School’s Center for Ethics and the Rule of Law, Dr. Dan Gottlieb and a panel of experts examine the effects of trauma on active military, veterans and, of course, civilians. What do different types of trauma have in common? How are they different? And what treatments are available? We’ll learn how to recognize our own vulnerability to Post-Traumatic Stress and how to seek help. We’ll also look at new research.
This event will be recorded for future broadcast on WHYY-FM.Golkin 100, Michael A. Fitts Auditorium
