23rd Annual Ethics Research Symposium

Do accounting ethics inspire you? If so, then the 23rd Annual Ethics Research Symposium is for you! All AAA members are invited to attend the Symposium on Sunday, August 5, 2018, preceding the AAA Annual Meeting in Washington D.C.

We are pleased to announce that the symposium will kick-off with a breakfast on Sunday morning immediately followed by our Plenary Speaker, Mary Gentile PhD, creator of the Giving Voice to Values Ethical Framework. Mary consults on management education and values-driven leadership. In her ten-year tenure at Harvard Business School, she developed and taught the school’s first course on managing diversity and helped design and taught its first required module on ethical decision-making. Currently she is director of the Giving Voice to Values curriculum and Professor of Practice at University of Virginia-Darden School of Business. Her articles have appeared in Harvard Business Review, strategy+business, BizEd, CFO Magazine, and Risk Management, and she has written several books on ethics and diversity.  

The Symposium encourages thoughtful research on the ethical applications of teaching, practice, and/or business that ultimately benefits the individual, government, or society. Accordingly, we challenge researchers in other accounting areas to identify and address the ethical implications of their research. The Symposium will recognize and award research in the following categories: Best Research Paper, Best Innovation for Teaching, Best Paper by a Current Doctoral Student, and Best Paper by a Recent Graduate (graduation from a doctoral program must have occurred within the last three years).

Questions can be sent to William Miller, University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire at Millerwf@uwec.edu, and Tara Shawver, King’s College at TaraShawver@kings.edu

Ethics Research Symposium registration fee includes: Breakfast and the Accounting Exemplar Award Luncheon.
