Working for the greater good...

Since APPE's founding, the world has undergone significant change. Across a variety of domains, we face uniquely new and persistent challenges that push the boundaries of current ethical standards and frameworks. 

Today's ethical dilemmas require innovative, collaborative, and interdisciplinary approaches.  As an organization dedicated to these principles and embedding the practice of ethics and ethical decision-making into all aspects of society, APPE's work has greater potential impact now than ever.
