“Freedom is an endless meeting”– Francesca Polletta, 2002.

As organizations strive to manage risks associated with research, product development, and data sharing, they are confronted with the challenge of setting up structures to facilitate discussions of ethics with internal and external stakeholders. They are immediately confronted with the challenges of identifying ethics expertise, deciding on an organizational design for ethical committees, and deciding just how to perform an applied ethics review that achieves actionable results.

In this session, attendees will learn:

  • Practical steps to set up and facilitate an applied ethics discussion that uses a consensus based decision-making framework,
  • How to identify ethics expertise within your organization,
  • How to choose a model for applied ethics discussions that is appropriate to your ambitions, and
  • How to participate effectively in a consensus-based discussion session that achieves results.
