    • Ethics in Marketing for the Treatment Industry

      Hi, I’m Michael Myles, Founder and CEO of Active Marketing, an advertising agency for the treatment industry. Today I want to talk for a brief moment about ethics in marketing. Over the last few years, and especially in the last year or so, ethics has become a priority topic of discussion in the industry. After speaking with dozens of treatment centers and industry professionals what I have found is that even though most seem to have a general sense of what is ethical and what isn’t, almost none have an actual documented code of ethics to guide them. It is my hope that by sharing the Active Marketing Code of Ethics with you now, you will be able to weed out the unethical tactics from the ethical. Ideally, the end result will be more confidence that you are making the right decisions for your business, and helping the consumer find the treatment they need. So here is the Active Marketing Code of Ethics: 1) Be Truthful – Be true and honest in your statements, both visual and verbal. 2) Be Accurate – Be accurate in the representations of application and effectiveness of your program. Be accurate in the depiction of statements made by professionals and scientific authorities. 3) Be Appropriate – Produce messaging and creatives that are decent and appropriate to the general public. 4) Be Transparent – Represent openly and honestly the manner in which your organization conducts business. 5) Be Genuine – Publish real testimonials that reflect the true opinions of the individuals involved. By having your ethical code clearly defined, your marketing team will be more agile, and able to use modern marketing techniques more effectively. If you have any questions about ethical marketing in the treatment industry, or would like to learn more about Active Marketing and the services we provide, visit our website at www.activemarketing.com

        • Vulnerability Is the Key Ingredient Missing from Leadership Ethics by Travis Waits


          from Travis Waits / Added

          10 Plays / / 0 Comments

          For every leader called to great impact, there comes a point when their character is refined in the crucible of ethical decision making. At our core of who we are, this is where our beliefs, convictions, and values collide. Most often this occurs when our ethics, the standard to which we have ascribed to follow professionally ends up being in conflict with our character, or who we are when no one is looking. Most of us as leaders will say that the most authentic are those that function in alignment with who they are from the inside out. There are no compartments, no mask, few blind spots...what you see is what you get. In the landscape of leadership, this degree of authenticity, vulnerability really, is popular to talk about, but hard to come by in practice. It seems that what refines and molds character and ethics together the most is conflict. Rather a crisis of belief, or 'dark night of the soul' as some have called it. When leaders choose to grow from these periods of refinement, instead of run from them, they are able to leverage the "who" they are more authentically from the inside out. This empowers them to influence others more effectively, and wholeheartedly, in their leadership. http://wp.me/p4mJYG-ZF www.traviswaits.com Be sure to subscribe to my playlist for updates: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZaVNb2H5fFjMHZBR0TGdbl4aB7lZrHQ5

          • “Race, Class, and Our Criminal Justice System” by Dr. Daniel Aldridge, Professor of History at Davidson College

            Dr. Daniel Aldridge, Professor of History at Davidson College, will discuss “Race, Class, and Our Criminal Justice System” on Monday, March 23, 2015, at 7:30 pm in Hance Auditorium, Chambers Building, on the Davidson College campus. This forum is hosted by the Vann Center for Ethics and cosponsored by The Black Student Coalition. This event is FREE and open to the public; no ticket is required. Dr. Aldridge will talk about police relations with the African American community in light of recent incidents such as the Michael Brown case in Ferguson, MO, the Eric Garner case in New York, the John Crawford case in Columbus Ohio, the Tamir Rice case in Cleveland and so on. He’ll argue that improving police/community relations is crucial to reducing crime rates in working class African American communities—a necessary precondition to improving the quality of life in those communities and making them healthy and supportive environments. Currently the criminal justice system is stacked against people who bring cases against the police. Jurors, judges, and prosecutors tend to give the police the benefit of the doubt in situations of alleged police misconduct, causing many African Americans to view the criminal justice system as an adversary, even though they are far more likely to be the victims of violent crime by other African American civilians than by police brutality and misconduct. The situation calls for reforms that create independent investigation and prosecution for cases involving police misconduct.

            • Curatorial Ethics

              This webinar will provide a forum to explore ethical conduct in the curatorial field. The ethics of certain aspects of curatorial work have long been topics of debate (de-accessioning, conflicts of interest in personal acquisitions, etc.), but new and ever more public ways of engaging with the world have raised new questions about what constitutes sound ethical conduct for a curator. What, for example, are the implications when a curator “likes” a commercial gallery exhibit on Facebook? This discussion will touch upon the traditional ethical debates as well as examine new ethical questions raised by changes in the field. Participants will benefit from the wisdom of two distinguished professionals who have deep experience navigating this complicated field. Moderator: Russell Lord, Russell Lord, Freeman Family Curator of Photographs, New Orleans Museum of Art Panelists: Helen Evans, Mary and Michael Jaharis Curator of Byzantine Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art Nik Honeysett, CEO, Balboa Park Online Collaborative
