The Institute for Enterprise Ethics at the Daniels College of Business hosts the fourth annual “Elevate Ethics: Ethical Leadership in American Business – A Dialogue” Wednesday, April 26, at 6 p.m. in the Reiman Theater in Margery Reed Hall at the University of Denver.

Ethical issues are always in the headlines. In recent months, we’ve had the Wells Fargo scandal, the Prescription Drug Pricing scandal and the ongoing scandal with the VW emissions issue. Join Elevate Ethics as three senior executives from diverse industries talk about ethical leadership in today’s business climate.

“Rarely does the public have the chance to hear senior business executives discuss the current state of ethics in their world,” says Dan Sweeney, director of the Institute for Enterprise Ethics. “That’s why the Institute for Enterprise Ethics began hosting Elevate Ethics three years ago. These executives’ candid and frank remarks provide a look into their world seldom seen by the general public.”

John Balkcom, former independent director and president emeritus of St. Johns College, will moderate the discussion.

  • Barbara Mowry, founder and CEO of GoreCreek Advisors and former chair of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank
