Master Class: Ethics & Governance
Corporations must adhere to some morally decent standards while its governance processes remain as ethical as possible while still making a profit. However, there are those who still believe that companies have a duty to their shareholders to maximize the profit. Thus, ethical standards are less important than legal standards, which explains why corporations will often "cut corners" when trying to meet expensive legal standards. So the debate has been on.
Should businesses focus their efforts on the corporation’s profits, or demonstrate ethical responsibility to the community and environment in which it operates? How will you influence the choice of the ethical path for your company? Join our Keynote Speaker, Alison Dillon Kibirige as she delves into this important topic.
All directors, senior managers, advisers to Boards, Auditors and anyone who serve at a level in a company which provides direct support to the Board, or aspires to serve on a board.
