LIVING BY A CODE OF ETHICS
Earlier in this unit, you did an Internet search for a professional code of ethics from an association aligned with your field or specialization. Review that code in preparation for this discussion.
A code of ethics is important in guiding decision making when values are in conflict and in helping to define acceptable behavior for members of an organization.
Provide the name of the organization or the organization that publishes the code of ethics that you found, for example, the American Society of Public Administration. Also provide the URL to the code of ethics. Be sure that you are following APA guidelines when providing this information.
Using the information in your Managing in the Public Sector textbook (the Introduction you read for this unit) to guide your choices, identify the following:
- One ethical standard from the code of ethics you located that is based on teleological ethics (utilitarian theory).
- One standard that is based on deontological ethics (duty ethics).
Explain how your choices fit the ethical theories. What are the basic differences between teleological and deontological ethics?
Be sure you follow APA guidelines for citations and references.
Your post needs to:
- Be at least 250 words.
- Contain a minimum of one reference or citation.
- Follow APA guidelines.
