Ethics helps us determine the right action when values are in conflict. In this 90-minute webinar, Kurt Nemes will lead an interactive discussion using scenarios drawn from SIETAR members’ experiences with dilemmas they have faced in their work. Using SIETAR’s Living Code Of Ethical Behavior,Kurt will show how it can guide and serve us as professional interculturalists. Participants can weigh in on the merits of possible solutions. Participants are encouraged to submit ethical situations they may be wrestling with to the Critical Incidents site (https://www.sietarusa.org/page-1852367) in advance. There will ample time for questions and answers. Kurt is also designing an ethics program for SIETAR and would like devote part of the session to gathering ideas and/or suggestions on how such a program would meet the needs of members.
Registration is free for SIETAR USA members and $25.00 for nonmembers.
