Ethics: Knowing Yourself and Navigating with Care

Ethics: Knowing Yourself and Navigating With Care


Situations present themselves all day that require us to make choices;  there are many pressures applied which can influence how you decide what to do.  This webinar will provide guiding principles from various codes of ethics – AICP, ITE, ASCE, NSPE and will test your knowledge through polls and questions.  We have all taken personality tests but have you ever thought that your personality might influence the ease with which you stay within ethical boundaries. Learn out to manage that potential risk.
You will walk through several real case studies to help bring to life the practical challenges of ethical decisions.  Experience a consulting firm’s dilemma when a key member becomes an elected official.  Learn about various state requirements that are layered on top of the professional codes.
When you complete this webinar, you will know where to find relevant references to ensure you are informed.  You will also be able to determine the rules that apply to your work and have experience examining applications of the rules.
