Excelsior College Ethics During a Crisis Discussion

I’m working on a law multi-part question and need guidance to help me understand better.

This week, we are focusing on leaders in crisis, and building on the SWOT Analysis you conducted last week. In that task, you selected an organization that experienced a crisis due to an ethical dilemma and/or bad press around perceived unethical behavior. Now, it is time to share what you learned from your analysis.

Provide a brief one to two-paragraph description of the organization you chose for the SWOT Analysis last week, the crisis, and the catalyst(s) for the crisis. In addition to these descriptions, include the following:

  • What were the ethical considerations for the leaders?
