Ethical people strive to always choose what’s right over what’s easy, popular or even urgent.
They look at the big picture and consider all potential impacts, often setting aside personal feelings and struggles for the greater good. It is the ethical person who returns a found wallet, even when they themselves are struggling to make ends meet. They are the doctor risking their own life to bring care to those in need, the teacher spending their own time helping struggling or difficult students, the CEO taking a paycut rather than cut staff in hard times. Ethical women have a strength of character that is unwavering in the face of hardship or criticism. Their interest is not in the spotlight, but in using their strength to bring fairness to a too-often unfair world.
We celebrate ethical women for leading through their actions, for their integrity, for their strength of spirit and for standing as our moral compass.
