#PRStudChat Celebrates Ethics Month with a September 21st Twitter Chat

Dr. Marlen Neill

Throughout the month of September, the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), holds several different activities and events to educate members, professionals and students on modern ethics.

Dr. Marlene Neill (@neillPR) is an assistant professor of advertising and public relations at Baylor University. Dr. Neill will be engaging with students, professionals and other educators in a community chat session via Twitter, discussing today’s ethics and sharing her professional advice. Join Dr. Neil on September 21st at 12 PM ET.

Here are some of the questions and topics that we will be discussing;

  1. What does ethics in PR really mean?
  2. Ethics – where do we draw the line?
  3. How do we decide what’s ethical and what is not in our work?
  4. What are some challenges PR pros face when it comes to ethics?
  5. What are some examples of companies using ethics in PR?
  6. How has social media evolved with the practice of ethics for PR professionals?
  7. What resources do PR professionals have when it comes to ethics?
  8. What advice would you give to professionals about ethics in PR?

Our mission with #PRStudChat is to help you navigate the PR and communications world, to answer your most pressing questions, to help you adapt to the on going changes, to learn, and grow together.

That’s why we are very excited to announce that starting September, our friends at Spin Sucks will be the #PRStudChat sponsor.

We hope you will join us September 21st for an informative discussion on ethics in communication and business. Your questions are always welcomed before or during the chat. See you on the 21st at 12 PM ET!

About #PRStudChat

It began with a simple question asked by Angela Hernandez, then President of PRSSA at Central Michigan University (CMU). “Is PR Right for me?” A follow-up blog post by PR 2.0 expert Deirdre Breakenridge inspired a series of direct messages on Twitter between Breakenridge and fellow PR industry pro, Valerie Simon. This was an important question and one that should be explored beyond one student or one blog post. Why not build a community to help students across the country, and even the globe, learn from the experience and perspective of industry professionals … A community where everyone can learn and grow together.
