Ethical Dilemmas in the Grant Profession and How to Make Informed Decisions

Ethics are part of every single aspect of the grant profession from identifying the right clients for you; researching, strategic planning, convening partners, writing and budgeting; fee structures, contracts and invoicing; and when building and sustaining a successful consulting business.

You don’t have to memorize the OMB Regulations but you have to know where to find the answers when advising clients and be aware of the new requirements that were effective in late 2014.  Relationships with your grant contract specialist are truly the key and ethics DO matter in relationships. In the end, our professional decision making is a reflection of who we are and the risk is our own reputation.  The cost can be your success or failure as a Grant Professional.

Join expert speaker Cyndi MacKenzie, GPC, in this session to review the national standards of the grant professional ethical code of conduct and its relevance to the field. You will learn about ethical dilemmas faced in the grant profession and how to make informed decisions based on the insights provided by the speaker.
