SESSION ABSTRACT
Can ethics be dangerous to your career? 
What should you do if you are asked to do something that you believe is illegal or unethical? 

Although ethical dilemmas are a normal and predictable part of most jobs, they can be dangerous to your career if you are not prepared for the organizational challenges that may test your personal values, moral beliefs, and commitment to doing the right thing. 

This interactive presentation, by Dr. Michael G. McMillan, Director, Ethics and Professional Standards at CFA Institute, examines several real life ethical dilemmas that professionals working in the financial services industry may face in the course of their careers. These cases challenge participants to consider the various courses of action to address the issues involved. Hand held electronic "response devices" are used to allow participants the opportunity to vote on the best course of action and to stimulate discussion. 

Hand held electronic "response devices" are used to allow participants the opportunity to vote on the best course of action. Because the presentation is based on the CFA Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional CFA Charter holders and Institute members will earn 1 Continuing Education Credit representing an hour in the content area of Standards, Ethics, and Regulations (SER).
