Fred Williams Featured Speaker at First Biannual Ethics Center Symposium

On March 28, 2012, the Ethics Center will present its First Biannual Ethics Center Symposium. Held at the UNCC Center City campus, the event will feature two speakers – Bruce Arrigof and James, McElroy & Diehl’s Fred Williams – followed by a panel discussion and audience participation.

The Symposium, entitled “Digital People: Technology, Identity, and Social Change” will address how social media is changing our identities and society, and whether these changes are making us better or worse thinkers, communicators, social activists, and citizens.
