This research study examines moral maturity levels against age, gender, race, and education levels of a Pittsburgh-based company that has more than 250 employees. The sample includes a widely diverse employee population of males and females of various ethnicities. The sample also includes employees who work in various positions ranging from clerical positions to management level positions. Potentially, each of these employees will be confronted with ethical dilemmas at sometime in their daily work environment. This dissertation will examine the moral maturity levels of the survey participants and the impact of age, gender, race, and education. This research study uses the Defining Issues Test (DIT), which is one of the most widely used instruments in the field of moral psychology and is known for its overall reliability and objectivity.
