IAVE 21st World Volunteer Conference Workshop 314: Greatness and Ethics
We all encounter situations which involve ethical questions and issues. Learn how to recognise an ethical issue, understand the difference between personal and professional ethics, and explore the universal values which apply to volunteer management. Practice a decision-making process for handling real-life ethical dilemmas you face on the job, and learn how to incorporate ethics into the work of your organization.
This workshop will enable participants to rightly explain why professional ethics are important and relevant, describe the ethical values which apply to their work with volunteers and apply an ethical decision-making process to the situations they encounter. Discussions will also cover common statements that people use to justify unethical behaviour. Participants will discuss how family, education institutions, national and international leaders can contribute to form ethical citizens.
