A code of ethics is a set of principles and rules used by companies, professional organizations and individuals to govern their decision making in choosing between right and wrong. Depending on the context of a given code of ethics, penalties and/or sanctions may result from a violation.
Codes of ethics are generally used in a professional context to assure the public that corporations and members of regulated professions are acting in a socially and professionally acceptable manner. Organizations with an established and published code of ethics have in place review processes and appeals procedures to guard against malicious or self-serving use of the code for individual benefit.
Consult the ethics code of the professional organization that best aligns with your interests. Review the ethical statements identified by this profession and list and explain at least 6 of the main or underlying moral principles or values included in the code of ethics. Use sub-headings to identify 6 specific principles that align with the professional organization you’ve decided to adopt. Where applicable, identify common elements that are applicable to some of the ethical concepts you’ve read about in this class.
