During the lecture, Daly will provide an overview of the Lockheed Martin’s ethics program including samples of ethics awareness training utilizing techniques described in Mary Gentile’s book, Giving Voice to Values.

"Ellen Daly brings a unique combination of theory and practice to her current role. She is committed to creating a culture based upon ethical conduct and sound business practices. Daly also understands that the business of ethics is good business,” says Dennis Dougherty, dean of graduate and professional studies.

GTL had over 10,000 employees working in 400 locations throughout the United States and in over 50 foreign countries supporting 2,600 programs.
