"Tone at the Top": The Board's Role in Managing Ethics and Establishing Corporate Culture 


Your mother was right!  Failing to do the right thing can damage the economics, or even threaten the continued existence, of major corporations as recent news events remind us.  Hear four experienced executives and board leaders discuss how they have confronted ethical and cultural challenges and what lessons can be learned by all boards.  The most meaningful bottom line may not be the latest quarter’s results but the lasting reputation of the organization and the individual men and women who set “the tone at the top”.
