Giving Voice to Values: The ''How'' of Business Ethics

Course Overview
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.
