Ethics in PR for a Global World with Jean Valin

Wednesday, April 24, 12 p.m. EST

Jean Valin

Is a global code of ethics possible or desirable? What would be the key components? Recently the members of the Global Alliance (GA), which includes the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and the Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS), adopted the Global Principles of Ethical Practice in Public Relations, which was applauded by organizations beyond the GA. We will explore the sixteen principles and discuss new resources made available to make ethics a practical, tangible subject in our work life.
