LOGO: Ethics and the 2016 Presidential Campaign

 

The 2016 Presidential Election has become the He Said, She Said exchange that trumps all others. Sure, the key ethical principles – fairness, integrity and transparency – will be upheld in the polling place. But what happens outside the voting booth?  How are voters being influenced during the countdown to November 8th?

The candidates have dedicated teams working the 24/7 news cycle. Social streams are filled with tweets, memes and videos. There’s no shortage of content … but what have we learned about the candidates' values, policies and plans for the future?  Are they committed to doing good and doing no harm? Are their messages upholding key values of truthfulness, transparency, relevance, respect and decency?  Is ethics on the campaign trail being esteemed and applied or ignored? Is it even possible today to have an ethical discourse in politics?

Join PRSA-NY, the New York Institute of Technology and a prestigious panel of journalists for a lively discussion about ethics and the 2016 presidential election.
