September is Ethics Month: Take Advantage of What's in Store

September is Ethics Month at PRSA, a great time to take advantage of the
content and educational guidance PRSA has developed to help members prepare for ethical challenges. This year's theme: PR Ethics Counsel:  Be Prepared.

What’s in Store


Free Member Webinar: How to Prepare a Personal Crisis Plan. Sept. 13 at 1 p.m. MT (on-demand Sept. 20). PR practitioners must sometimes make tough decisions when faced with job-related dilemmas. How do you call out unethical or even unlawful behavior on the part of employer or client — without damaging your own career at the same time?

Twitter Chat: PR Ethics curriculum.  
#EthicsMonth. Sept. 18, 6 p.m. MT. Hosted by the PRSA Educators Academy/ Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) PR Division & AEJMC Media Ethics Division and featuring BEPS Member Marlene S. Neill, PhD, APR.

Blog Posts: Ethics Month on

Additionally, read an excerpt from the forward to A Practical Guide to Ethics in Public Relations by PRSA members Regina Luttrell, Ph.D. and Jamie Ward, Ph.D., now in paperback. The introduction, by PRSA Colorado Ethics Officer and Board Member Teresa Dougherty, recounts an experience she had in corporate communications that may be familiar to those who have grappled with ethical dilemmas and obligations as PR practitioners.
