Event Details

 

 You’re invited to Women Get On Board's Halifax event on Thursday October 10th, 2019:

"Ethical Intelligence in the Boardroom"

 

Hosted by McInnes Cooper  and Presented by our Event Partner Odgers Berndtson 

 


 

 

 

 

 

In the wake of countless business scandals and corporate collapses, there has been a call for a higher standard of business ethics. Ethics are at the heart and soul of every business decision; they form the basis of the underlying culture of every company. However, the culture and ethics of a company are set by the tone at the top: the boardroom.

How can boards build a sound and sustainable culture as well as good ethical practices that will improve transparency, decrease the risk of fraud, and reduce the likelihood of reputation damage? The key focus should be to institute practices that outline the expectation of appropriate conduct, and to put in place controls that ensure these standards are being met.

The panel discussions will be focus on five good governance practices to put in place to ensure good oversight:

  • Code of Conduct
  • Whistleblower Policy & program
  • Ongoing Board Renewal process
  • Diversity & Inclusion Policy & Practices
  • Internal Controls/Review of Culture & Integrity
