Ethics in Professional Fields of Practice

Leaders and individuals in professional fields of practice are ultimately held to an elevated set of ethical standards of behaviour that are underpinned by legislation, regulation and business standards which may include local and international codes of practice. Ethical example and tone are not only set by the leadership of an organization but are now increasingly integrated within professional bodies who hold their membership contingent to well-defined integrity and ethical standards.

This course addresses key ethics and compliance issues that are applicable to specific professional fields of practice in a direct, practical and relevant manner.

This half-day workshop is aimed at professionals in their relevant fields of practice and covers key ethics content relevant to professionals who are guided by a specific set of ethical standards and applied codes of practice.

The workshop content is also customized to the SA environment with our unique challenges and includes a number of relevant ethics themes for this year. These include the fostering ethical culture, proactive steps in preventing ethical lapses, the impact of data privacy and protection and promoting ethical standards in a global market place.
