Governance Ethics

Ethics, When Absolute Right and Wrong Don’t Apply

As media reports on public sector financial scandals makes it very clear, ethics need to be at the heart and soul of every governance and HR decision. With the speed at which information is delivered through social media, news can quickly proliferate and, as a result, judgement can make or break a reputation in a short period of time. In time where COVID-19, diversity and equity are at the heart of every decisions, the challenge for executives is being ethical in a world where guidelines for behaviors are being consistently blurred such that absolute right and wrong no longer seem to apply.

This session will address how executives can be ethical in a corrupt environment, and how they should frame their ethical behavior, in a way that resonates with as wide a network of ethically sensitive stakeholders as possible.
