Virtue ethics emphasizes the role of one's character and the virtues that one's character embodies for determining or evaluating ethical behavior. This presentation will discuss various theories of ethics and argue that the best ethical practices of pension professionals and professional practices develop when practitioners focus on virtue ethics rather than specific codes of conduct. It will discuss:
- The relationship between our Code of Ethics and the philosophy of virtue ethics.
- How virtue ethics applies to practical issues in an employee benefits practice.
- How virtue ethics can make you a better practitioner.
- How virtue ethics is relevant to Circular 230.
