Speaker Series: Board's Responsibility for Ethics & Risk

"An ethical culture can benefit sustainability,stability and profitability." - Reatha Clark King, PhD

The Institute kicked off the 2014 new year with a speaker series titled "The Corporate Board's Responsibility for Ethics & Risk in a Time of Crisis."  This half-day event focused on one of the most critically important aspects of doing business with integrity: the role and the responsibility of the board of directors for setting the tone from the top, especially during a time of crisis.  The seminar featured a keynote presentation by Reatha Clark King, PhD, Chairwoman of the Board of the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), past member of the boards of  Exxon and Wells Fargo and former President of the General Mills Foundation. Following Dr. Clark King's remarks, ethics and risk expert, Andrea Bonime-Blanc, CEO of GEC Risk Advisory and Chair Emeritus of the ECOA, faciliated a hands-on, ethical crisis scenario exercise in which audience members acted as the C-suite of a fictional company with a serious ethical crisis. A mock board, composed of actual board members, also participated and voiced the concerns and advice of the board during this crisis. The seminar concluded with the articulation of critical take-aways on how boards can better set the tone from the top for ethical leadership and effective risk management.
