September is PRSA Ethics Month and #PRStudChat will be holding an ethics discussion on Tuesday, September 13th at 8:30 p.m. ET. Our community of PR students, educators and pros will join together for a dynamic Twitter chat on “Ethics – The Heart of Leadership.” We welcome as our special guest and co-moderator, Kirk Hazlett, APR, Fellow PRSA, who will lead the community conversation on the values and fundamental beliefs that guide our behaviors and decision-making process.
A little bit more about our special guest … Kirk Hazlett is an Associate Professor of Communication / PR at Curry College. He is also a member of PRSA’s Board of Ethics & Professional Standards. Kirk 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 #PRStudChat topics we’ll cover that night will include defining ethics, understanding how ethics is at the heart of leadership, sharing opinions about ethical misconduct and exploring different situations where your ethics may be challenged. Some of the situations we will discuss include scenarios with internal business relations and client communication.
We hope you’ll join us on September 13th for an interesting and useful discussion on ethics in communication and business. As always, we welcome your questions before or during the chat session. You can tweet @PRStudChat, @ValerieSimon, @KirkHazlett or @dbreakenridge with your questions. Be sure to also visit our LinkedIn Group to share your ideas.
Hope to “see” you on the 13th!
