SIETAR USA's Living Code of Ethical Behavior was originally created in 2013? The 2021 Ethics Committee has been hard at work updating the Code to make it more relevant and reflective of the work our members are doing in the DEI and Intercultural fields. We are pleased to announce that the updated code has been approved by the SIETAR USA Board of Directors, and is now available.
