Ethics workshop resources

Member Network/Other Organisation Workshops

The Member Network/Other Organisation Workshop forms part of “The Big Conversation”, a programme of formal and informal events and conversations run by the CILIP Regional Member networks and Special Interest Groups, as well as external organisations, during the main strand of the Review. They are focused on three open-ended ‘big questions’ about Ethics in the profession:

  • How aware are you of the CILIP Ethical Principles?
  • What do you consider to be the big issues/challenges affecting your work, and the profession as a whole?
  • What do you think of the Ethical Principles? What works and what doesn’t? Is anything missing?

Each Member Network is invited to hold at least one of these conversations during the consultation period.
