EthicalVoices is one year old. Thank you. It is just beginning.
Today is Halloween. I was going through some old files and found an infographic I created back in 2014 – The Nine Circles of PR Hell. Since it is also a throwback Thursday, I decided to share it here as a bonus post.
Good morning. Today is Labor Day in the United States, so this week I will be taking a break from my labors of bringing you insightful ethics content. Rest assured, I have great interviews already in the hopper for September. But September is an important month. It is PRSA’s Ethics
Matt Kucharski, the President of Padilla, a public relations agency that builds, grows, and protects brands worldwide discusses how good organizations can learn from ethical challenges. He also shares some great advice on:
• Four ethical challenges PR agency employees can face
• How to use agency values to work through client conflicts
• How to best deal with unethical client behavior
• Why ethics training should not be an annual checkup
Rather than have a regular post, I’m asking people to take a moment and reflect and think about what we complain about regularly and how that right to complain was bought by the people that served and came before us. Then spend the time with your loved ones and be thankful.
For those that want to read more, following are two of the most moving texts I have ever read.

Today is New Year’s Eve. I realize many people are taking the day off of leaving early to spend time with family and friends. While Ethical Voices launched in Q4 2018, it has already reached tens of thousands of professionals and the response has been overwhelming.
So on this day as we look forward and look back, I wanted to briefly share some of the highlights of Ethical Voices 2018 – The best ethics advice and most quotable quotes from those communications and PR professionals I interviewed.
And of you like these, wait to you see what I have in store for 2019.
