My favorite thing about ethics is...

How so many of us see things differently. Our approach to ethics is so often grounded in our life experiences and lessons learned. We all approach life with a unique lens, which can lead us to see things differently at times. How we work together while embracing those differences, is at the heart of creating a truly ethical experience.
