  why did you study communication?  

A.G.M. ~ I study communication becuase it is foundational to the human experience. Everything that we do personally and professionally hinges on effective communication.

R.D.P. ~ I chose to study communication because I was originally interested in pursuing a career in public relations. After realizing the importance of communication in so many areas of our lives, it became much more relevant to me, so I decided to pursue the study of how to identify and "fix" communication problems.

  why is your chapter important?  

A.G.M. ~ Understanding the ethical implications of oral and written communication is essential for being a trustworthy person.

R.D.P. ~ Ethics and diversity are important in all aspects of communication. To me, an unethical speaker is the one who loses in a communication setting. This chapter identifies the different ways speakers can be ethical and provides suggestions for improving ethics and diversity in public speaking.
