Personal Ethics Statement-Believes

Organizations often have leadership or ethics statements, which are sometimes posted in break rooms. Pretend you are charged with writing a leadership/ethics statement for an organization with which you are currently involved. Write a one-page statement that is informed by your beliefs and the course readings. Depending on your organization, you may need to use your beliefs only to inform what you write (i.e. you might not be able to be explicit about your beliefs in your statement, but you can use them as the basis for your statement).

you can write your own personal ethics statement.

It is important to practically apply your beliefs and values to the situations that you are in every day. Some of those situations will not be friendly to your beliefs and world view, and you need to think about how you will approach those situations and stay true to your personal beliefs.
