Free STC Member-Only CAC Webinar: Why Ethics?: Interpreting “Ethics” and What STC’s Ethical Principles (Can) Do

About the Webinar

When we talk about ethics, we often do so in a very general sense. “Do the right thing,” seems to be a general perception of what it means to be ethical and, as a result, any meaningful discussion of personal or corporate ethics often seems stagnant. If we all just did the right thing, we wouldn’t have personnel issues, arguments over corporate rights, concerns over privacy issues, or any other problems-unless, of course, we all have a different sense of what is right.

As members of the Society for Technical Communication, we operate under a set of six ethical principles. This webinar explains how those six principles; legality, honesty, confidentiality, quality, fairness, and professionalism, work against the larger backdrop of ethical theory. This webinar teaches the fundamental components of ethical decision making, and introduces different types of ethical theories. We conclude by looking at how we can operationalize the STC’s ethical principles, and how our organizational ethics can be of professional use in our workplaces.

About the Audience

This webinar is open to all STC members and nonmembers.
