How can you build an ethics-based culture? How can do you go about rewarding ethical decisions?

Organizations with strong ethics-based cultures are significantly less prone to misconduct. Driving the right culture is part of our professional responsibility, and is key to organizational success, but culture can be elusive and dynamic. This course explores organizational culture by examining typical conversations that go on at the board table and in day-to-day operations throughout the organization.

Throughout this course, expert interviews provide insights into how to manage the tone at the top, the benefits of diversity in the boardroom and the threat of unconscious bias.
