Introduction to Ethical Decision-Making Webinar
An Advocacy and Ethics Committee Sponsored Event
Introduction to Ethical Decision Making is a free, highly interactive, case-based webinar led by CFA Institute staff that will provide participants with the framework to analyze situations from an ethics perspective (PDF).
This webinar focusing on ethics in finance is a part of CFA Society Los Angeles’ Putting Investors First Campaign. The Putting Investors First Campaign, in its fourth year, is a global CFA Institute initiative that looks to build awareness and unite investment professionals in a commitment to place investor interests above all others.
Throughout the campaign, many of the 147 member societies worldwide will host local events like this one, to call attention to the needs and rights of investors by supporting the Statement of Investor Rights, a list of ten rights that any investor should expect from financial service providers.
CFA Institute and its societies aspire to build and lead the investment management profession. To do this, we must continue to stand together for what is right, and in investors’ best interests. By supporting Putting Investors First, we want to inspire our community to make real impact and foster a market environment where both investment professionals and investors can thrive.
The 60-minute session will include:
- An examination of the factors that lead well-meaning individuals to make unethical decisions
- An explanation of how to apply a framework for analysis of ethical dilemmas common in investment practice
- Several case studies involving real-life situations with the opportunity for participants to vote on the appropriate conduct
- A facilitated discussion of those studies that allow participants to apply ethical framework
Participation is free and available globally. The audio portion of the webinar is provided through VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). To participate in a session, you must have access to a computer with speakers or headphones. Upon registration, you may also participate in the webinar through the Adobe Connect Mobile App for Apple and Android phones.
