In honour of Global Ethics Month (February), CPRS Calgary is hosting

A Study in Ethics: An in-depth discussion on ethics in public relations

CPRS Calgary presents an in-depth discussion of two cases involving ethical challenges in public relations and communications practice, moderated by Sheridan McVean, APR, FCPRS.

Review the ethics cases in advance and come prepared with your suggestions on how to solve the ethical challenges. Or come and listen to how others perceive and overcome the ethical challenges in these two cases.

When: Saturday, February 29 from 9 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Where: Roderick Mah Centre for Continuous Learning, Room EC-1145, Mount Royal University

9:00 – 9:15 a.m.                   Introduction to the cases and ground rules for the discussion

9:15 – 10:15 a.m.                 Discussion on Case #1

10:15 – 10:30 a.m.               Break

10:30 – 11:30 a.m.               Discussion on Case #2

11:30 – 12:00 p.m.               Wrap Up

After you register and about ten days before the event, you’ll receive a web link to the two cases on ethics related to public relations practice. Review the cases before the session and come with your opinions on how you would handle the hypothetical situations described in the cases. The cases include questions to be answered for each case.

This session will appeal to a wide range of practitioners from students to senior practitioners, as the two cases to be discussed provide a wide range of complexity.

Registration for this session includes both cases, but you are welcome to attend to discuss one or both of the cases.

CPRS is hosting this session on ethics as part of the first ever Global Ethics Month declared by Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communications Management for February 2020.
