FRESNO, Calif. – The California State University, Fresno Chapter of PRSSA hosted an ethics workshop in honor of PRSA Ethics Month on Tuesday, Sept. 25.
During the workshop, members analyzed ethical scenarios and evaluated the situations by utilizing the PRSA Code of Ethics. After deciding why each scenario was unethical and how it violated the Code of Ethics, students presented their findings to all members and explained how they would individually deal with that situation if they had encountered it.
The Chapter’s Professional Adviser, Lanny Larson, served as a special guest and addressed the situations by providing feedback on the members’ presentations and provided suggestions on other things they could do to further their ethical behavior.
“This was a meeting where we were involved and put our public relations minds together,” said member Yocelin Gallardo. “Being asked to solve ethical situations was interesting and to present our solutions to a public relations professional was the best because we got feedback.”
