With Andrew Fastow now free from prison, it is a good time to revisit the importance of ethical behavior in business. Most CEOs instinctively understand the need for ethical behavior in their organizations. They intuitively know where lines are drawn, even at the very edge of competitive pressure, and rarely tolerate breaches. But how do we manage to make those lines clearer to everyone in the company? How do we prevent those who might be tempted to cross the line from doing so? When they do, how can we become aware of the breach before relationships with customers, vendors, employees, or investors are irreparably damaged, or before we are faced with scrutiny from the media and sanctions from government?  These questions and more will be addressed by our exceptional panel of experts, which includes an Enron director who lived through the nightmare of Fastow’s ethical failure, a lawyer who has helped companies deal with ethics violations, and a professor of "scandal" from the Markets, Ethics and Law program at NYU.  You won't want to miss it!
