Ethics B (Social Networking in the Workplace) LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available


In our very busy lives most of us use one or the other of the internet choices for social media.  Social media is a popular way to stay in touch with our friends, family and colleagues, and the proliferation of sites for specific purposes and types of connections grow in number every day.  Oh yeah–“got an app for that?” 

But what parameters define the ethical use of social networking in your workplace?  What advice do you give clients and families about boundaries related to the use of social networking?  When does the liability of allowing use by clients, families, staff, your development department, and the organization outweigh the good?  What parameters are needed?  What limits are required?  Who holds the liability when something bad occurs and who gets praised when allowing use of social networking brings dividend?  Within these questions and other questions as well issues of productivity, what defines an inappropriate posting, and the personal life clients and employees enjoy outside of the work environment are embedded. 

While not new, the principled use of social media and social networking can be confusing for child caring organizations.  This workshop will examine the ethical questions raised by the decisions and desired outcomes of the use of social networking by your organization.
