2021 Virtual Public Sector Seminar: How Much Are Your Ethics Worth?
Ethics are central to the CPA profession. But what do we mean by ethics? Do they just represent appropriate behavior, compliance with laws, or much more? Join BKD and Keely Gohl with the Colorado Society of CPAs as we share what sets ethics apart and, thus, sets the accounting profession apart. We’ll explore CPA tools, the role of bias, and real-life case studies, including one individual who set a $53.7 million price tag on his ethics, only to lose it all.
Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Describe how ethics are more than just behavior
- Discuss AICPA requirements and resources regarding ethics
- Apply the AICPA framework to case studies
- Identify the role of bias when facing ethical decisions
