January 18th

Featuring: John Miller

Leadership Academy Pillar: ETHICAL

Engineers operate in a framework of regulatory compliance in virtually every aspect of their professional activities.  Learning to foresee and understand the potential conflicts between the behavioral requirements of Morals, Ethics and Regulatory Compliance is important to a successful engineering career.  This session outlined the meaning – and confusion – of morals and ethics.   Attendees had the chance to complete the Ethical Lens Inventory (ELITM) to learn their ethical lens, be challenged by interactive business case studies, present their views and put the information to practical use by suggesting solutions. 

John Miller currently serves as Senior VP of Human Resources and Government Relations as well as a Member of the Board of Directors for Macpherson Energy Corporation—an integrated energy provider delivering oil, gas, and renewable energy.  Over the course of his career, Miller has engaged in consulting and held executive roles at numerous companies across the energy industry, including: Chief Operating Officer for Pacific Ethanol, Inc., Senior VP of Project Development at the Calpine Corporation, President of the Power Resources Division for Thermo EcoTek, as well as President & CEO at Pacific Generation Company…just to name a few.  He holds a bachelor’s of science degree in mechanical engineering from Oregon State University, completed Harvard Business School’s Executive Education program, and earned an MBA from the University of Portland.
