Agenda

Directors, C-Suite Executives, and General Counsel have important responsibility maintaining ethics standards throughout all business operations. Four key areas are: (1) the increasing emphasis on compliance issues; (2) the education of employees regarding proper practices; (3) the need to ensure that outside partners and suppliers possess the same ethical core values as your corporation; and (4) furthering successful operations. Thomas Sager, Senior Vice President and General Counsel of DuPont, will focus his Keynote Address on how corporations ensure that they conduct business in compliance with legal requirements and consistent with their ethics and values.

The Distinguished Panelists will also discuss key ethics issues including compliance; government regulation and enforcement; investigating possible unethical and/or fraudulent behavior; treatment of employees; whistleblowing; privilege; and internal reporting.
