Red Flags for Corporate Boards

Thursday, May. 31, 2012

Corporate directors can take action to prevent or abate major ethical meltdowns at their companies by being alert to red flags that show an organization is in trouble.  In a joint program this month with the National Association of Corporate Directors, Silicon Valley, the Ethics Center offered a panel discussion on eight signs that a company may be headed for ethical meltdown. 

Panelists included Katie Martin, partner at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, Vince Vannelli, founder of KPG Ventures, Skip Battle, chairman of Fair Isaac and Co., and Jim Balassone, executive-in-residence at the Ethics Center.  Their presentation was informed by the work of Marianne Jennings.
