Can ethics be dangerous to your career?
What should you do if you are asked to do something that you believe is illegal or unethical?
Although ethical dilemmas are a normal and predictable part of most jobs, they can be dangerous to your career if you are not prepared for the organizational challenges that may test your personal values, moral beliefs, and commitment to doing the right thing.
This interactive presentation, by Dr. Michael G. McMillan, CFA, Director, Ethics Education, at CFA Institute, examines several real life ethical dilemmas that professionals working in the financial services industry may face in the course of their careers. These cases challenge participants to consider the various courses of action to address the issues involved. Electronic “response software” will give participants the opportunity to vote (using cell phones, tables, or laptops) on the best course of action and to stimulate discussion.
