    Organizations with strong ethics-based cultures are significantly less prone to misconduct. Driving the right culture is part of our professional responsibility, and is key to organizational success, but culture can be elusive and dynamic. In this course, we’ll explore promoting culture through examining typical conversations that go on at the board table and in day-to-day operations throughout the organization. 

    We’ll also hear thoughts on building and maintaining an ethics-based culture from respected colleagues and experts in the field.


    Conversations in the boardroom will examine issues facing those charged with governance, including:

    • Managing the tone at the top
    • The benefits of diversity in the boardroom
    • The threat of unconscious bias
    • Learning from the experience of others

    Conversations in the hallway explores the challenges of building an ethics-based culture through day-to-day activities and includes:

    • Ethical leadership at all levels
    • The importance of "the mood in the middle"
    • Making talk about ethics the norm
