Air & Waste Management Association to Facilitate Interactive Webinar on Ethical Dilemmas in the Environmental Professions
Pittsburgh, PA (Oct. 3, 2007) – The Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) will present an interactive Webinar offering environmental professionals the opportunity to discuss industry ethics in everyday practice, consider solutions, and share experiences. “Ethics and the Environment: The Rules of the Game,” will be held Nov. 14, 2007 at 2:00 p.m. EST.
“Environmental professionals can unexpectedly encounter ethical questions as they go about their daily work,” said Hal Taback of Hal Taback Co. Environmental Consultants and current chair of A&WMA’s ethics committee. “When these situations arise, the professional has a tendency to react based on instinct and behavior learned over a lifetime. Our ethics training is designed to help professionals recognize an ethical dilemma and respond appropriately.”
Bob Hall, Chief of the Air Pollution Technology Branch, U.S. EPA, Office of Research and Development and former A&WMA president will moderate the interactive Webinar discussion, along with Taback. The event will feature discussion on ethical dilemmas often encountered in the course of environmental work, and will present a protocol that can serve as the basis for attendees to present an ethics workshop for colleagues. Taback and Hall will also offer tips and ideas for resolving ethical dilemmas.
