A memory submitted by Martha Acosta, Class of 1996

One of the professors at Cox who made an impact on my career was Robert Rasberry. He reminded us that ethics was a critical part of business and he encouraged my inquiry into ethical leadership and organizational behavior. I have been designing and delivering corporate training since 1998 and have worked with some of the largest companies in the world, many of whom are popularly seen as major corporate bad guys. When I stand in front of executives and discuss how the role of the leader is to create an environment where employees can make ethical decisions and behave in a way that promotes good communication and sustains healthy relationships, I try to honor Dr. Rasberry and all he taught me.
