CIPR Members' Week launches with new ethics guide


The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has launched its annual Members’ Week with a new guide on ethics in public relations and has announced a number of exclusive benefits, prizes, and offers.

Each day across the week the Institute will release a new benefit or resource and will be giving away £5000 worth of professional development prizes for members to win for themselves or gift to others in a social media contest.

The new guide out today - Everyday Ethics in PR – is a collection of seven anonymous case studies featuring real-life ethical dilemmas as described to the CIPR's Ethics Hotline. The case studies have been constructed to help members reflect and consider how they would respond, with a summary of the advice provided by the CIPR Ethics Hotline included.

New benefits will be launched each day with another guide on measuring internal communications due out on Thursday:

  • Monday – Everyday Ethics in PR: Case Study Collection
  • Tuesday – Brilliant Briefs and Powerful Proposals webinar
  • Wednesday – Iprovision 75 Fund
  • Thursday – Internal Communications Measurement Guide and Matrix
  • Friday – Equity, diversity and inclusion: Free on-demand training series (*limited to 1,000 spaces) 

Prizes include one-year memberships, on-demand training courses, and one-day virtual courses. For anyone looking to join the CIPR, to celebrate our 75th anniversary, the Institute is giving new joiners up to £75 off with code MemWeek23. Visit the CIPR’s website to read the full terms and conditions.

This week is a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase the breadth of what we offer members. Over the next few days members will get exclusive access to a range of resources that will help them learn, upskill, and develop themselves. They will be taken through ethical dilemmas, given a better understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion, and provided with a practical toolkit on measurement. On Wednesday I’m excited that we will be announcing details of our new Iprovision 75 Fund, designed to support a more diverse PR professional community.
