Professional Responsibility, Ethics, and the 21st Century Learned Professional

Presenter: Joe D. Manous, Jr, PE, PhD, D.WRE

Description: This session will introduce, or reacquaint, the practicing professional with the foundation and principals that guide most codes of ethics for learned professionals in the United States.  The discussion is geared toward engineering, but the concepts are equally applicable to anyone who performs their duties with clients, stakeholders, or partners, and especially the public, where personal trust is essential for the performance of the work.

 Learning Objectives:

1) Appreciate the difference between a learned professional and other professionals within the work place and the value each provides to society

2) Understand why trust and ethics are related and essential for the learned professional

3) Understand the goals sought by most codes of ethics or standards of conduct published by state licensure boards

4) Describe the general difference between the outcomes sought by codes of ethics published by professional societies and those published by state licensure boards
