Commitment to ethical conduct and protecting the public are what differentiate CPAs as essential business leaders. Adherence to the CPA Code of Professional Conduct is not just a professional obligation, it’s a source of pride, value, and competitive distinction. Our stakeholders rely on our judgment and guidance, but ethical dilemmas can be complicated, and determining how to implement the best course of action can be challenging.
This course will provide participants with an opportunity to refresh and update their knowledge of the CPA Code and build competence in interpreting and applying the Code to resolve a variety of realistic situations. Participants will also explore the current environment of workplace ethics and assess the implications for ethical leadership. The workshop emphasizes collaboration and interactivity, as participants are engaged with their peers on a variety of activities including quizzes, comparative surveys, and case studies.
Who Should Attend
This course is applicable to CPAs at all levels of their career, and in any type of organization. The course draws on examples and interactive activities across a range of industries and roles that reflect the breadth of the profession. Special care will be taken to balance the contexts of industry, government, not-for-profit, and public practice/public accounting. Sufficient content will be provided such that any given offering can be over-weighted in its focus (through additional examples and/or case studies) to be more reflective of the audience in the room.
