Developing and Enacting Codes of Conduct in Professional Unions

The 8th SCGES webinar was held online on June 28th, 2023 at 6-8 PM CEST. More details here.

More and more academic, research, and industrial institutions are enacting codes of conduct. These codes clarify an organization’s mission, values, and principles and can serve as both internal guidelines and external statements of values and commitments. Several international unions have recently developed such codes of conduct, and many more are interested in doing so. This webinar will discuss the motivations, challenges, and successes for codes of conduct within professional unions. Speakers representing four unions who have recently enacted such codes will present their organizations’ experiences followed by open discussion at the end of the session.
