Northwest Florida Coast Chapter presents our virtual meeting with special guest speaker, Brigitta R. Brunner, Ph. D., who is an Auburn University Professor and Editor of the Journal of Public Interest Communications. Dr. Brunner will speak about some frameworks that influence our approaches to ethics. The differences among ethics, values, and legalities will also be explored as will the reasons why those distinctions matter. Examples from current events and case studies will be used to discuss and reinforce the importance of accountability and responsibility in ethical public relations practice.
