For the fall semester, the Business Integrity Leadership Initiative at the Sam M. Walton College of Business is hosting its Let’s Talk program, which will focus on speaking up when something seems wrong. Students, faculty, staff and the public are invited to participate.
Led by Cindy Moehring, Founder and Executive Director of the Business Integrity Leadership Initiative, the fall Let’s Talk About It program will explore how to express your values when something seems wrong and how to create a culture that supports it. Guest speakers will provide concrete examples and lessons learned from their experiences dealing with ethical dilemmas.
The program includes three guest speakers and a book. The semester’s book is titled “Giving Values a Voice: How to Speak Your Opinion When You Know What’s Right” by Mary Gentile, Ph.D., a values-based leadership expert. Guest speakers include Gentiles and whistleblowers Sherron Watkins (Enron) and Erika Cheung (Theranos).
Gentile, celebrity author and creator of the Giving Voice to Values program, will present live via Zoom from 6-7 p.m., Wednesday, September 14. The second speaker is Watkins, a leadership and ethics advocate widely known for being the whistleblower on Enron Corporation’s Accounting Irregularities. She will present in person and live via Zoom from 6-7 p.m., Monday, October 10. The third speaker, Cheung, is a key whistleblower in the Theranos fake medical test scandal. Cheung, co-founder and executive director of an ethical nonprofit, will present in person and live via Zoom from 6-7 p.m., Wednesday, November 9.
