opportunity to create a code of ethics for you and your family

Instructions

This  assignment provides you with an opportunity to create a code of ethics for you  and your family, as well as to explain the strategies and thought processes  that went into developing the code. First, create an original code of ethics for your family by thinking about your family as an organization. In your code of ethics, please include the following items:

  • guiding  principles, 
  • purpose of the code, 
  • core values, 
  • training and education (How will you train and educate others about the code?), 
  • definitions, 
  • who it covers,
  • mission statement, and
  • other pertinent elements you feel  necessary to have a comprehensive code of ethics.

The next part of this assignment involves an evaluation, where you  describe    the  thought process behind the code of  ethics that you prepared. For the    evaluation  part  of this assignment, draft an  essay to include  the following   items:

  • Identify the key roles of those who have a vested interest in the ethical behavior that your code defines.
  • Explain the strategies and thought processes that you used to formulate the code.
  • Explain how you would strategically implement and communicate the code to others in the  organization.
  • Explain how you will monitor the practice of ethical decision-making.
  • Provided that laws exist and have been enacted for resolving conflict, why do we also need a code of ethics?

In the process of writing your code, you must research the topic of codes of   ethics and incorporate at least two articles,  no  older than five years. Your   code and  evaluation must be at least 1,000  words. Format the code  as  you   like; however,  be sure it is professional and  legible. Format the evaluation   part of the assignment by using  APA Style.
