Giving Voice To Values: The How Of Business Ethics

It is not uncommon for accountants and business managers to find themselves in a situation where they were explicitly told, or were implicitly pressured, to do something that conflicts with their own values. Our cameras were on hand as Dr. Mary Gentile, creator/director of the Giving Voice to Values program, demonstrated to the Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity at Baruch College how values-driven decision making can, and should be, crucial to accountants and financial executives.

  • Identify the considerations under GVV related to how you can get things done effectively once you know what the right thing to do is.
  • Recognize how to get accountants to handle ethical problems.
  • Identify the three GVV reversals.

Prerequisites/Advanced Preparation:

Work experience in a corporate staff environment, or an introductory course in ethics
