This two-hour webinar will provide you with a general overview of the role of ethics in society and business, and the ongoing need for a clear and distinctive process for resolving ethical dilemmas when they arise in the EA profession. We will begin with a look at the foundation of the EA profession in the EAP Core Technology and the EAPA standards of practice, advance through a review of the EAPA Code of Ethics and the EACC Code of Conduct, and end with some experiential exploration of an EA "ethical decision-making process" and several ethical scenarios. The session will combine didactic information with group discussion to fully explore the current state of ethical decision-making as it applies specifically to the EA field. The interactive discussion provides the opportunity you to familiarize yourself with a model of decision-making and to gain comfort with a format of inquiry that you can readily apply on-the-job, ultimately helping to build your skills in applying a methodology that easily transfers to your day-to-day EA work.
