Q: My boss has told me to champion a position in a meeting that I strongly disagree with in an ethical or professional context. How do I proceed without either compromising my personal ethos or getting reprimanded?
A: You should never be forced to promote ideas or actions that you feel are against your professional or ethical beliefs. It is a matter of professional integrity that may require some personal bravery to address.
It’s probably best to have a discussion with your boss about this before the meeting.
