The Board's Role in Building a Company's Ethical Culture

Thursday, Nov. 18, 2010

Just as a corporate board has an important role in the strategic direction of a company, so they also can play an important part in the company's ethical direction. 

Michael L. Hackworth, a 45-year veteran in the high tech industry and chairman of the Ethics Center's Advisory Board, discusses what boards must do to set the ethical tone.  He is interviewed by Lon Allan, chairman of the National Association of Corporate Directors-Silicon Valley (SVNACD) about the board’s role in building an ethical culture.
