In this webinar, you will explore business ethics and the challenges of working ethically in today’s ambiguous business environment as you revise your obligations under the Code of Ethics and understand how to apply the Code’s conceptual framework through a public practice lens.

This two-hour course counts towards the mandatory two-hour per triennium Ethics requirement as per the CR 7 regulation.

By exploring the concept of ethics in your business and personal lives, you’ll acquire the knowledge and tools to enable you to deepen your ethical awareness and further develop your ethical judgement. 

As part of the webinar, you will work through a range of exercises based on typical dilemmas faced by members in public practice as you revise the principles, threats to principles and key requirements of the Code of Ethics. This will assist you to make well informed ethical decisions and take appropriate actions when implementing an ethical culture and/or dealing with ethical dilemmas. This course has been tailored to suit a public practice audience.
