Values and ethics are an essential part to human life. They differentiate between right and wrong. To know the difference can keep people where they should be; allowing them to be good example to others. People like to see someone walk out an ethical lifestyle, not just hear about it. What is valued defines character because it shows what is most important. It is the standard people hold themselves accountable to which actions are based on the values they live by. When people have good values, it can carry into other areas of life; both professional and personal.By having good values and ethics in life, it is easier to let that filter into a career. A person will want to show that they have

Making consistently ethical decisions is difficult. Most decisions have to be made in the context of economic, professional and social pressures, which can sometimes challenge our ethical goals and conceal or confuse the moral issues. In addition, making ethical choices is complex because in many situations there are a multitude of competing interests and values. Other times, crucial facts are unknown or ambiguous. Since many actions are likely to benefit some people at the expense of others, the decision maker must prioritize competing moral claims and must be proficient at predicting the likely consequences of various choices.

The development of women’s football in Britain during the 19th century illustrates the transformation of gender roles in British culture in the context of Victorian era values and women’s football: “‘The Cultures of sport in Britain have been distinctively male, rooted in masculine values and patriarchal exclusiveness’” Through the introduction of female football into British society the system of Victorian values were challenged by expanding gender roles. The institution of women’s soccer in the late 19th and 20th century was supported by the wartime need to reorder gender roles during WWI, and it challenged traditional feminine ideology.

Role theory is an important subject that all managers must not only be conscious of, but must learn to master. Considering the natural tendency for professional relationship to quickly turn into personal relationships, a manager must be cognizant of the dynamic that will be created if one member of the work force is placed in a supervisory role or promoted into a higher hierarchical position than other co-workers. Role theory and role conflict all boils down to the necessity for a manager to understand from a psychological

Life RolesLife roles and activities are a major importance in the development and implementation of career goals. Different life roles require discrete basic skills, responsibilities, and expectations because each life role has explicit priorities. A college student, a career professional, and a parent will each have different life roles and transitions to achieve balance between responsibilities. Life roles necessitate different attitudes, values, and challenges.

Broadly conceptualized, gender roles are what our society expects and values in their community. They shape our behavior and values, thoughts and feelings, even going so far as to denote a person’s worth. Gender roles are present in everyday situations. In the past they strictly dictated the behavior of people in the community (the right to vote, occupations women were allowed to work in), though in the recent past have become more subtle and more successfully challenged. In some instances they are learned consciously, in others they are more subtly ingrained in our lives. Put simply, they are ubiquitous not only in intimate partner violence, but in almost every part of our lives.

Cultural Values and Personal Ethics Paper
Personal, organizational, and cultural values are the basis of an individual's personal and professional decision-making style. These values are the key ingredients that make up our core beliefs. Values are ideas that are actions which could be right or wrong, good or bad that are the basis of human action (Tosi 2000). Personal values might also be called morality, since they reflect general expectations of any person in any society, acting in any capacity. These are the principles we try to instill in our children, and expect of one another without needing to articulate the expectation or formalize the process in any way. Family is the first

He proposes a lifestyle which involves working towards balancing key life roles on a weekly basis and being guided by principles, mission and goals. This approach would suggest that we should not be trying to be more efficient (do more things in less time) but to be more effective in the areas of our life that matter the most.The first section of the book introduces us to the concept of the "Clock and Compass."

50 years, traditional roles between men and women have significantly changed. A turn in feminist thought and attitude toward their outlook on life has shifted original ideals in a whole new direction. Women now put tremendous value in being a workplace professional as well as the matriarch within the home. Supporting this trend is a 2009 study completed by the U.S Bureau of Labor. “In 2009, 59 percent of working-age women in the United States were in the labor force. This percentage has increased from 43 percent four decades ago1.” In turn, man’s roles in American society have been altered dramatically based on the female vision.

As a nurse, we serve a society which is very culturally diverse. We provide care to many individuals whom have their own unique set of ethics, values, morals, and beliefs by which may be very different from our own. Because of our professional role, we must use lifelong learning as a tool to broaden our views, increase our knowledge, and understand the influences which affect it. To make this possible, we have to continually educate ourselves about the nursing laws, professional standards, and code of ethics all of which we are committed to.

The system of values relevant to professional life of females differs considerably from that of males.

The benefits of parents’ decision to raise their children equally, in the absence of traditional gender roles, will contribute to a more well rounded and prosperous society.

Organizational Culture and Structure
The structure of an organization determines the allocation of roles, regulations, and responsibilities, and therefore builds a basis for the culture in an organization. There is a constant relationship between organizational structure and organizational culture that provides a theme within an organization. Both can be difficult to clearly define and distinguish when analyzing an organization. Organization culture is a perspective into the company’s personality; it provides descriptive values, principals, traditions, and a way of doing things that effect how members view the organization (Robbins, DeCenzo, & Coulter

It is clearly a fork in the road at birth that will determine many things you will barely ever have any control over. What you wear, what you eat, what you do; all is directly influenced all throughout your life based on your gender. These “gender-roles” have been long assigned without personal say, or even our parents say. In fact, it stems from almost pre-historic times to the beginning of our evolutionary chain. Regardless of more current acts that have meshed these rolls together, I think it is obvious to say we will always look at a man and women differently. It only

Ethics and values apply to our personal and professional lives. Ethics are a notion of one’s actions, which originates from ideology of an individual doing what is right not wrong. According to the dictionary ethics is the “branch of philosophy dealing with values relating to human conduct, with respect to the rightness and wrongness of certain actions and to the goodness and badness of the motives and ends of such actions.” These beliefs are amassed to help a person determine how their actions will be carried out. Ideals can be applied as values to a person’s way of living. There are people that view values as a personal code, and see them as a personal indication of their beliefs. Our

With society changing and women’s roles changing, one of the most significant changes that would have been affected by the Equal Rights Amendment would deal with discriminatory laws, which helps women have an equal chance. It gives women equality in wages, health insurance, pension, social security, and more. This also helps redefine that women’s roles aren’t just within home taking care the family and having no say in such issues, but that women have much to contribute to society just as much as the men’s roles.

Many factors contribute to the problem of gender inequality ; two of these factors will be discussed, social structural factors and social psychological factors. Attitudes and values of both men and women perpetuate gender inequality. Past attitudes have reflected the traditional role of the female within society: the notion that women are less capable and competent as men. Within this traditional role, a woman's place is in the home, as the guardian of the social order.

Statement of Nurses personal and professional values
It may seem that personal and professional values are two separate categories. It can be argued, however, that these are two entities in the same realm. One could suggest that personal values are referring to one’s conscience while professional values refer to professional obligations. In any case, the altruistic basis of nursing can imply that they are one in the same, with professional values being more defined.
Values are central to one’s
