Challenges for Ethical Procurement - and practical tools
As meeting and event professionals, we regularly come across situation that require us to make decisions involving ethics. These decisions aren't always easy to navigate when there isn't a clear right and wrong. In this facilitated discussion, we will explore some of the grey issues we face as professionals in the events industry and how to approach them. We'll discuss topics including intellectual property, supplier selection, transparency, and other important issues and how the decisions we make affect our professional reputations.


Learning outcomes:

      Understand that ethical dilemmas are not simply about choosing between right and wrong, but also about balancing competing values

      Understand the impact of perceived or actual unethical behaviour on your reputation, career and brand

      Understand the role of rationalizations in decision making, and how they influence our actions
