Ethics Workshop: The Slippery Slope of Greed

When:  Jun 9, 2023 from 08:00 AM to 12:00 PM (ET)
Associated with  Greater Philadelphia Chapter
This workshop is based on Le-Nature’s, Inc., a Pennsylvania-based beverage company founded in 1989 by CEO Gregory Podlucky, who oversaw a large-scale financial fraud based on bogus sales revenues from the late 1990s through 2006.

We will use the Le-Nature’s fraud as a vehicle to explore the fraud triangle, the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) internal control framework, and how management accountants can contribute to strong internal controls, fraud prevention, and an ethical climate that encourages good overall corporate governance.

You will also explore the ethical responsibilities of corporate accountants and other parties involved in the accounting and financial reporting process by referring to the IMA Statement of Ethical Professional Practice.
