Sexual Harassment

Stop. Don't Be Like Google - There is Nothing Situational About Ethics

I purchased a copy of Eric Schmidt’s book “How Google Works.” I highlighted section after section. I could not wait until my next university class to have the highlights distilled by my students. After all, my teaching was as much about changing behavior as it was about establishing an ethical culture. I had explained there was nothing situational about ethics. The right thing is always the right thing.

My excitement subsided when I recently heard of Google having paid Android founder Andy Ruben over $90 million involving sexual harassment.
