Wendy Herbert - Institute for Global Ethics
A recent mentor to newly appointed superintendents, Ms. Herbert is past president of the B.C. School Superintendents Association and former member of the B.C. Principals’ and Vice-Principals’
Herbert first encountered the Institute for Global Ethics in 2002 when IGE founder Rush Kidder was invited to speak to a plenary session of educational leaders in Victoria, B.C. “What struck me almost immediately was how the IGE approach could be applied to me personally and how I could share that personal experience with my colleagues and then with others outside my immediate professional circle. I saw a tremendous potential for personal growth,” says Herbert. “At that time, in my 20 years in education, I hadn’t been to a seminar that resonated so soundly and stayed with me so intensely long after the event. And I wasn’t alone in that feeling. My fellow participants said they felt the same way.”
The former superintendent of schools emphasizes that the IGE approach to ethics teaching stands out for its clarity. “Other ethical teaching techniques that I have been associated with tend to be extremely complicated,”
