ProEthics Workplace Ethics and Sexual Harassment Training

(Updated 11/21)

Everyone hates sexual harassment training, and, as a result, most programs merely serve as “check-box” exercises, fulfilling liability requirements but doing little to reduce workplace misconduct or make strides toward a safe, fair and respectful workplace.

ProEthics workplace ethics programs are the exception. Lively, interactive, often employing the diverse talents of the Ethical Arts Player, yet substantive and challenging, our seminars are designed to make certain staff and management buy in to the ethics principles that guarantee a harassment free workplace, and that the ethics alarms start ringing before conduct crosses lines—not just legal lines, but the those defining professionalism, ethics, and common sense.

ProEthics has customized its workplace harassment training for government agencies, small businesses, Fortune 500 companies,  law firms, associations, and academic institutions. The response is routinely positive.

The Ethics Funhouse

The Funny, Scary Legal Ethics Game Show!

(Updated to 9/21)

[Note: this format requires a volunteer panel three (glib, ideally engaging and knowledgeable) attorneys with a solid knowledge of  legal ethics]

(Four, three or two hours)

A strange and funny, lightning paced  ethics seminar in the format of a panel game show. Three distinguished practitioners/ expert/ contestants answer and discuss legal ethics questions, hypotheticals and dilemmas posed in various diabolical ways by the Ethics Host, who will involve the audience in competition with the panel as well as lively debate on current legal ethics issues. The up-to-the-minute program is a parody of a parody,  inspired by NPR’s humor and current events panel show “Wait…Wait! Don’t Tell Me!”

The program has been adapted for law firm and bar groups, researchers, business groups, even actuaries! Each version is customized for the event and the profession involved.

NEW! Jack’s FAVORITE!…Ethics Blues. It requires a piano, but is well worth it. Professional cabaret singer, comic and actress Esther Covington accompanies herself as she sings lilting parodies that pack more ethics issues and more great music into a single seminar than any program before or since—- to the unforgettable tunes of Richard Rodgers, Harold Arlen, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin and others.
