The event, which begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Crescent Club on the ninth floor of the Vaughn Center, is free and open to the public.

On Wednesday, Nov. 8, Earnest Broughton, senior advisor for the Ethics and Compliance Initiative, will be on the hot seat at The University of Tampa’s Ethics Hot Seat Speaker Series, hosted by the UT Center for Ethics. The event, which begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Crescent Club on the ninth floor of the Vaughn Center, is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Broughton’s talk, “Ethics from the Outside In and Inside Out,” will be an interactive journey that explores the emerging science behind why we act the way we do, especially when our behavior runs contrary to the values we hold dearest, and what we can do about it.

Broughton, along with Dan Verreault, director of the UT Center for Ethics, and Robert Marley, associate director of the UT Center for Ethics, will tackle the question of how much our behavior can be attributed to the environment, to our sociocultural context, and to the psychological, biological and neurological factors that make us human.

Broughton served as executive director of the Ethics Program for United Services Automobile Association (USAA) from 2000–2011. He is the co-founder and current president of the Greater San Antonio Ethics and Compliance Roundtable.
