About the Event

“Ethics & Executives” Speaker Series: Initiated by Smeal’s Board of Visitors, the speaker series provides students with an opportunity to hear, first-hand, about executives’ experiences with navigating an ethical dilemma in the business workplace. In a live session, executives share their personal stories and engage the student audience in a meaningful discussion. Through these sessions, students increase their ethical awareness, examine a wide-range of ethical dilemmas and ethical decision-making practices, and prepare to be ethical leaders. The series typically showcases three sessions each semester.
