In recent years, a number of well-publicized scandals resulted in public outrage about deception and fraud in business as well as demands for improved business ethics and greater corporate responsibility. In 2002, at least 330 public corporations had to restate their revenue and earnings, yet corporate executives and business professors differ in their ideas on how to improve business ethics philosophies and the importance of it.

This two day symposium will offer corporations, business schools and other key stakeholders current research, knowledge and best practices on business ethics in America. The symposium will feature corporate leaders and distinguished academic scholars who will share their research, knowledge and insights.


In addition to the many high profile corporate, organizational and academic panelists, speakers include Lynn Brewer, former Enron executive, author of "House of Cards: Confessions of an Enron Executive" and chairman of the International Society of Ethics Examiners, Wayne Murdy, Chairman and CEO of Newmont Mining, Allan Spies, former CFO of US WEST, Ken Hunter, president and CEO of the Better Business Bureau and Toby Bishop, President and CEO, Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.
