PRSA has designated September as “Ethics Month” with a wide variety of activities to educate and inform members and industry professionals. The month is jam-packed with twitter chats, webinars, blog posts, newspaper articles, and in-person presentations. In the spirit of Ethics Month, #PRStudChat welcomes Kirk Hazlett, APR, Fellow PRSA, on Tuesday, September 15th at 8:30 p.m. ET, as our guest host and moderator, to lead a discussion on ethics and ethical conduct.
Kirk is an Associate Professor of COMM/PR at Curry College and is a member of PRSA’s Board of Ethics & Professional Standards. He will engage students, professionals and educators in a community chat session focusing on the importance of ethics in our professional communication. A few of the topics we’ll cover that night will include the definition of ethics, understanding the “Declaration of Principles,” opinions about ethical misconduct and different situations where your ethics may be challenged.
We hope you’ll join us on September 15th for a fast paced and informative discussion on ethics in communication and business. As always, we welcome your questions before or during the chat session. “See” you on the 15th!
