Alexandria Brown-Pitts IDIS302: Ethical Issues in Business Professor Williams My Personal Code of Ethics As I have grown and matured, I’ve developed my personal code of ethics. This code of ethics includes my value system, moral character & principles and the value ethics has in my life. Because I was raised mostly by my father, I absorbed a lot of his personal code of ethics molded by my experiences. I feel that my code is constantly evolving with me as I gain new experiences, perspectives and principles. MY VALUE SYSTEM More so than any other component of my personal code ethics, I am aware that parts of my value system are a direct result of my pain. For example, I value family and quality relationships higher than anything. Unfortunately, my mother’s death when I was eight years old is the catalyst for my top tiered value. My mother did instill a strong connection to her side of the family that was lost after her death. The haste my father took to fly from South Africa to California so quickly because he knew I needed him when my mother died was a strong example for me. I remember thanking him for it, he looked at me surprised and simply said, “Our blood doesn’t come any thicker baby girl, I’ll always be there, anytime you need me”. Being isolated with my father made me realize how important it was to have family and quality relationships. Coincidentally, my father is the catalyst for my next value, my job/career.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
