Elevate Ethics Academy Workshops

The Elevate Ethics Academy typically is delivered in a sequence of four, 90 minute, interactive workshops. With 25 employees in each session, participants will walk away with practical, positive tools that they can immediately implement in their professional lives. Elevate Ethics Academy can be facilitated by Alliance staff or be delivered through our train-the-trainer model.

Each workshop is comprised of an interactive presentation complete with a participant workbook and follow up materials to support continued learning. After each session, post-surveys are administered to measure knowledge and skills retention and application, anticipated behavioral changes, and usefulness of training.
