Course Description

The dynamics involved in a professional's relationships with other professionals, clients, employees and other associates can include power, authority, control and trust. These integral characteristics require a heightened awareness and understanding of the issues associated with such relationships. APEGBC professionals are expected to behave in a manner that exemplifies and supports the fair and courteous treatment of others, as required by Principle 7 of the APEGBC Code of Ethics.

APEGBC recognizes the importance of fostering a workplace environment that welcomes all of the increasingly diverse members of our society and enables them to contribute to their full potential. APEGBC encourages its members and licensees to be proactive in improving the workplace environment for all employees, clients, and associates and in addressing issues such as discrimination and harassment.
