What do you think are your organisation’s responsibilities? ï‚· Who would you identify as your key publics in communicating on this topic? Classify these publics and give reasons for your answers. ï‚· Is ethics important to your organisation’s best practice PR? What ethical practices can your organisation adopt as part of its PR strategy? What are the responsibilities of your role as PR/communications manager? Give reasons and provide examples: ï‚· Research a range of public relations activities conducted by different organisations concerning the same or a similar ethical issue. Summarise two examples/case studies including one best practice and one poor practice example of negative PR activities involving ethical issues. Use these examples as rationale to provide advice on what ethical practices your organisation can adopt as part of its PR strategy.
