Public Relations professionals have a unique position of being at the intersection of our organizations or clients, audiences, media and other stakeholders. It is a position that requires us to meticulously think through the lens of how ‘what we do’ impacts each component.  Additionally, it carries the added responsibility of being the chief consciousness officer of the entire ecosystem. 

We all know that ethics matters, but what does that really mean? Ethics is so much more than a "do the right thing" mantra. Ethics must be the foundation upon which we do business. In this webinar, participants will learn why ethics must be woven into the DNA of an organization and the very real bottom-line business reasons for having a structured ethics program.
