She discusses her experiences as an executive of WorldCom leading a significant portion of the company’s financial restatement, the largest fraud and bankruptcy in the world. She discusses the foundations of ethics. . . and breaks it down into a framework of three components: “the Law”; “moral standards” and “appropriate behavior”, evaluating each one in turn. She uses as the basis for this discussion presentations as a guest lecturer to leading universities, including Emory University’s Goizueta Business School. Some of the anecdotes may surprise you!
