Professional Ethics: Ethical Decision-Making
October 30, 2014
Thursday 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM (ET)
Is employee compliance sufficient or is more expected? Some organizations want more than compliance—they want to foster an ethical culture. How can compliance professionals take their firms beyond compliance and build a culture of ethical decision-making? This workshop is designed to engage compliance professionals in the challenge of building an ethical culture through the use of case studies and an ethical decision-making framework.
This practical and interactive session, presented by CFA Institute directors and NRS, will use real-life examples to bring ethical decision making to life. Identify ethical pitfalls and discover the key strategies that you can utilize to overcome them. This session will provide you with the knowledge to make better decisions and implement those decisions throughout your organization.
After attending this course, attendees should be able to:
- Recognize unethical decisions and related actions including fraud, aiding and abetting
- Build strategies to investigate activities objectively and allow you to operate transparently
- Review the regulatory framework that should shape your decision-making
