Best practices for dealing with common, but often overlooked, ethical challenges.

Society rewards companies that do good by doing well, yet with the age of the chaos and misinformation that is 2023, the continued fragmentation of society and growing expectations for companies to speak out on issues, the chances for ethical missteps are greater than ever. Join Mark W. McClennan, APR, Fellow PRSA, a leading voice in the conversation on ethics with his blog, podcast and #1 public relations book Ethical Voices to discuss:

  • Best practices for dealing with common, but often overlooked, ethical challenges
  • What new ethical challenges are PR professionals likely to encounter and how should they prepare for them?
  • What are the ABCs of ethical failures?
