CIPR publishes interactive ethics podcast

The CIPR has published a new interactive podcast - as part of Ethics Festival - to promote ethical conduct and help public relations professionals tackle ethical dilemmas. 

The podcast features three fictional scenarios designed to stimulate thought and inspire ethical decision making. Each scene is followed by an analysis from Professor Anne Gregory Hon FCIPR and Donald Steel FCIPR.

Suitable for individual use or group work, the podcast can be paused to allow discussion between scenarios.

Eva Maclaine FCIPR, Vice-Chair of the CIPR Professional Practices Committee
In many cases in ethical situations there is no right or wrong answer but we hope this podcast will act as a stimulus for ethical conduct and help practitioners arrive at appropriate ethical decisions.
Eva Maclaine FCIPR, Vice-Chair of the CIPR Professional Practices Committee

The podcast is worth 5 CPD points and contributes to the compulsory ethics module of the CIPR's Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme.

The CIPR would like to thank Lansons Live for studio services and the actors, Ebony Gayle MCIPR, Stuart McBride Chart.PR, MCIPR and Francesca Knight.
