The C-Suite and its denizens, for good or for ill, set the ethical tone for the organization. This CFO Academy will explore how the C-Suite can promote a positive ethical tone for the organization. We’ll start by exploring the negative: how the federal government thinks about criminal indictment of organizations and how an effective ethical program can reduce the likelihood of indictment and of punishment if something goes wrong. We’ll then think about what an effective ethics program looks like, how an organization’s systems need to be aligned to bring this about, and what top managers need to do. We’ll conclude by looking at the role that finance personnel play in building ethically aware organizations. Come prepared for lots of interaction!
