In your response, you will create a set of core, ethical beliefs and moral requirements for people engaged in your line of work, or your intended line of work. Drawing from Chapters 5 and 15 in your textbook, along with the eight additional sources you research to support your opinions, formulate your response based solely upon scholarly sources.

  • Evaluate the pros and cons of two ethical theories applicable to the work scenarios you chose;
  • Create your own code of ethics for the position and the foundational sources for your code;
  • Design a best-practices checklist for your chosen position; and
  • Propose how your code of ethics will positively impact all stakeholders to the position.
