"Moral Dilemmas in Public Relations": Creating Your Personal Ethical Decision-Making Framework

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - October 25, 2007) -


                   Thursday, November 15, 2007
                 11:30AM - Check-in and networking
                   12:00 - 1:00 - Lunch/Program

When in an ethical dilemma, what will be driving your decision-making -- personal interests, your organization's best interest, global influences, maybe a combination of all three? As a public relations professional, it is crucial that you know before an ethical dilemma arises just how you will handle it.

Join the Public Relations Society of America's Gulfstream Chapter on November 15 for a hands-on learning experience and take away new tactics for creating and implementing a decision-making framework for dealing with ethical quandaries.

Dr. Leslie A. Leip, Professor at Florida Atlantic University's School of Public Administration, will shed light on this "scary" subject and make arriving at ethical decisions a pain-free and practical process. Dr. Leip has worked with numerous government and non-profit agencies on evaluations of programs and policies and these experiences have provided her the opportunity to understand how these agencies survive in today's demanding environments. She has witnessed one of the dilemmas that many people face -- making ethical decisions that affect their agencies and constituents. She believes that an ethical decision-making framework is one of the best tools administrators can have in order to survive in the public, non-profit, and private sectors.

Dr. Leip has provided ethics training seminars for the Florida Atlantic University Institute of Government, the Certified Public Manager's State and National Associations, and the American Society for Public Administration.
