The Submission for the 27th Annual Ethics Research Symposium has been extended to March 20th. The Symposium is held in conjunction with the Public Interest Section and highlights the role of ethics, accountability, responsibility, and the impact of accounting on society. These themes have never been more important and play a critical role in investigating causes and consequences of (un) ethical practice and policy at the systemic, organizational, and individual levels.

A wide variety of public interest and ethics topics are addressed at the Symposium. These include corporate social responsibility, whistleblowing, sustainability, corporate governance, safeguarding the public trust, earnings management, ethical issues in tax, government policies, nonprofit ethical issues, and various accounting ethics education topics (curriculum, teaching approaches, cases, etc.).

The Symposium will be held in person in Denver, Colorado on Sunday, August 6th, right before the 2023 AAA Annual Meeting. Symposium registration fee includes Breakfast and the Accounting Exemplar Award Luncheon.
