Speaker: Larry Kalbers, Ph.D., CPA

Topic: Who Do You Trust? The Importance of Ethics, Values, and Trust

Kalbers will review ethical foundations and briefly discuss the ACFE Code of Ethics and Professional Standards. He will present an applied ethical decision model that can be used to approach any ethical dilemma. Through a discussion of values and stakeholders, he will provide examples of conflicts that arise between different values and how they are applied to different stakeholders. Kalbers will also introduce the importance of culture and trust within the context of society, professions and occupations, organizations, and interpersonal relationships. Finally, Kalbers will address some of the reasons it is so difficult to be ethical. Recent examples of events and research will be used throughout the presentation.
