Transformation Through Dialogue
We help communities and organizations address ethical challenges through collaborative research, education, and discussion. Listening to one another, working with each other, and learning from those we disagree with are truly some of the most ethical things we can do.
Message from the Executive Director
“Ethics is about what it means to live well for an individual, an organization, or a community. It is not so much about rules and punishment and guilt as it is about the keys to health, happiness, and human flourishing.”
Max Latona, Ph.D.
