We are often faced with ethical quandaries in our professional lives, and charting the best course of action can be challenging. In the context of plant collections curation, such ethical conundrums may involve matters of collections monetization, cultural heritage, navigating regional and global treaties or regulations, and invasive plant or plant pest introductions. In this session, members of the Association’s Plant Collections Professional Section leadership team will guide participants through a hands-on exploration of ethics in a small-group setting. We will begin by introducing an ethical decision-making rubric and then participants will then be divided into four break-out groups, each of which will be presented with real-life scenarios.
