The Center for Ethics in Action (CEIA) was created in 1996 in order to promulgate a new ethical compass for our country and the world beyond, with women leaders in alliance with men setting the course. All its endeavors are multi-dimensional and interdisciplinary, honoring the principle of life-long learning. They include conferences, international exchanges, literary symposia, art exhibitions both international and domestic, papers, catalogues and other publications –all celebrating women’s leadership in many creative avenues – academia, business, public policy, the arts and humanities. CEIA has recently expanded its scope of work to include a Fellows Program with public presentations and an on-line publication, an E-Journal. This program seeks participants in a variety of disciplines working at the intersections of the arts, humanities and public policy, including where appropriate their historical roots. CEIA encourages Fellows to seek funding from a number of sources. The Center is a publicly supported, tax-exempt non-governmental organization located at the University of New England, Portland, Maine campus.
Women leaders across all disciplines can help move our societies to a new code of conduct – one that nurtures our young, our communities, our governments, the least developed parts of our world, and our planet itself. Women leaders envision a global society of race, gender and ethnic equality.
