T & D Presents Enron Case Study: Power, Politics, and Ethics

RU’s Graduate Program in Training & Development, in conjunction with the Business College, are pleased to offer the opportunity to attend a unique session with Sherron Watkins, the key whistleblower in the Enron scandal.

On Thursday April 22, 2010, from 8:00 – 11:00 a.m.,  the highly acclaimed “The Smartest Guys in the Room” documentary (nominated for an Academy Award in 2005) will be shown in Gage 315, followed by a quick case review. Attendees will then have the opportunity to hear directly from Watkins on her experiences at Enron, once the number four company on the Fortune 500 list, and to also hear how the events there led to the downfall of Arthur Andersen, which at the time, was the largest accounting firm in the world.

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Jackie Talerico or 847.619.8730. Space is limited.
