Transparency and Accountability are Essential in Business, says Keven Ann Willey

What is the purpose of business? That’s the question Keven Ann Willey, Vice President and page editor of The Dallas Morning News, will answer while speaking on transparency and accountability at this week’s Trust, Ethics & Transparency conference.

“We will be discussing what the purpose of business is,” said Willey.  “To maximize profits for shareholders? To provide desired goods and services for mutual benefit?”

Willey will also speak about what steps can be taken to encourage the more consistent application of core values.  “Greater transparency and accountability are key,” said Willey.

The Cary M. Maguire Center for Ethics and Public Responsibility will host the Ethics, Trust & Transparency conference on Wednesday, November 2, 2011 in the Jim Collins Conference Center on Southern Methodist University’s Dallas campus. Registration to attend the conference is open to the public. For more information and to register online, click here or copy and paste this URL in your web browser.

    Is the Maguire Center studying and/or contemplating a session involving ethics in the non-profit setting? Particularly the Episcopal School of Dallas sex scandal recently played out in a Dallas courtroom.
