“For my leadership and ethics course, it is important to unpack and explore these real-time case examples: the supply chain for adequate PPE for essential workers; the accelerated timelines for new vaccine development; the need to adopt sometimes difficult measures to protect employees from COVID-19. My course allows students to discuss and analyze these cases, and others, in a reflective and methodical way.”
