Building an Ethical Corporate Culture: Ethical breaches—such as those recently uncovered at Volkswagen and Takada—have tremendous fallout for corporations. How do such situations arise in companies—and what can corporate boards do to avoid such an environment in their own organizations? A panel of leading corporate directors and governance professionals will discuss best practices and share their experiences in assuring an ethical corporate culture.
