Examine the role equity plays in various ethical frameworks and find out how communities and planners are taking on health equity.

This event offers 1.5 AICP CM Ethics credits.

Planning Ethics in Action

ethics

APA has recently started a planning ethics blog:  http://blogs.planning.org/ethics/

The blog is designed to highlight common ethical traps, provide memorable illustrations, and provide a platform for regular review and discussion of the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, with particular focus on the Ethics Case of the Year.  Discussion of ethics case studies should begin in late November 2013.  If you are a member of AICP, the blog should be a periodic stop to revisit ethical issues.  If you aren’t AICP, the blog will also touch on APA’s Principles, which are relevant to all citizen and professional planners.

The event is free to attend, but you must register in advance to attend: http://dvrpc.ticketleap.com/. Please note: you must attend the event in person; you cannot watch from your desk.

Sometimes “ethical” planning decisions run afoul of the law, but why? How does a court’s perspective on ethics differ from a planner’s? Broaden your understanding of ethics (and the AICP Code of Ethics) and learn how cases have been decided. Examine what standards the law uses to judge ethical behavior. This program is fast and informative. Hear from individuals who closely follow legal developments and from colleagues on the front lines as this important subject is examined.
