Ethics Scoreboard is a creation of ProEthics, LTD, an ethics training and consulting firm based in Alexandria, Virginia. The firm emerged to counter the widespread belief that ethics had to be boring and technical, and stands for the proposition that most people are engaged by ethics and care about the resolution of right and wrong when the issues are discussed directly and dynamically.
ProEthics presents innovative, interactive and entertaining ethics programs, often with actors, occasionally with music, on a variety of topics including legal ethics, sexual harassment, business ethics and compliance, non-profit ethics, lobbying, government ethics, research ethics, workplace ethics, diversity, and student ethics, as well as specialized courses for a wide variety of professional associations. Its website is www.proethics.com, and its contact information is listed to the right.
Jack Marshall is the President and founder of ProEthics, and the primary writer and editor of The Ethics Scoreboard. He has taken the experience gleaned from a diverse career in law, public policy, academia and theater, and applied it to the field of legal, business and organizational ethics. A graduate of Harvard College, where he specialized in American Government and leadership, and Georgetown University Law Center, he practiced criminal law in Massachusetts and organization law in the District of Columbia, and led non-profit organizations devoted to education, public policy research, and health.
Marshall’s articles and essays on topics ranging from leadership to ethics to popular culture have appeared in The Federal Lawyer, Everyday Law, Trial, The Settlement Strategist, and numerous state bar publications, and his ethics commentary has been featured on numerous radio shows, the Montel Williams Show, and PBS’s Religion and Ethics Weekly.
He is also an award-winning stage director, and is the artistic director for The American Century Theater, a professional non-profit theater company dedicated to producing classic American plays. He lives in Alexandria with his wife and partner, Grace Marshall, their son Grant, and their Jack Russell Terrier, Rugby. Like many who are interested in the nature of good, evil, justice, and chaos, Jack Marshall is a lifetime fan of the Boston Red Sox.
