Program Guidelines

OK Ethics is firmly committed to honoring our members' time by providing high quality programs focused on business ethics.  Key to that is the selection of topics and speakers.  

The attached guidelines should be helpful in developing practical, dynamic events that serve business leaders as they strive to reinforce high standards of ethical behavior in the workplace.

Program and Speaker Guidelines

Individuals extending invitations to guest speakers are responsible for advising the individuals to avoid the "5 P's" as follows:

  1. No profanity
  2. No proselytizing
  3. No politicking*
  4. No self-promotion
  5. No put-downs

* An individual actively running for political office is precluded from speaking as it may create an impression of partisanship.  (See additional details on the attached guidelines.).  Also, OK Ethics will not be used as a forum for supporting a political cause.  Such activities are prohibited by the OK Ethics' Board of Directors.
