OK Ethics Lunch Forum

Cameron University School of Business hosts a livestream of the Oklahoma Business Ethics Consortium (OK Ethics) lunch forum on Wednesday, August 20, 2014.  The luncheon features internationally recognized speaker, best-selling author and consultant, Cynthia Cooper, speaking on "Ethical Leadership for the 21st Century". Oklahoma Society of CPA’s and the OKC chapter of Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) co-hosts this event with OK Ethics.

“OK Ethics’ mission is to promote Oklahoma values of integrity at work,” says Shannon Warren, founder of the Oklahoma Business Ethics Consortium.  “We are inspired by the great support of business leaders who sponsor these monthly forums focused on high standards of ethical behavior.”


Cooper and her team unraveled the fraud at WorldCom, to date one of the largest corporate frauds in history.  She served as Vice President for MCI where her and her team helped the company move forward and successfully emerge from bankruptcy.


She was named one of Time Magazine’s Persons of the Year (one of seven women to receive this honor) and featured in national periodicals such as The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, CFO Magazine, and Business Week.


“Cynthia Cooper is a world renowned speaker and the ability to provide her insight to our students at Cameron and regional business community is an incredible opportunity,” says Dr. John Camey, Dean of the Cameron University School of Business.


The Consortium provides a forum of support to the Oklahoma business community so that ethical standards and integrity in the workplace can be discussed, defined and reinforced.  The Bama Companies, Hobby Lobby, Kimray and three major energy companies: Chesapeake, SandRidge and Devon, are some of the top-level members who provide the means for Oklahoma businesses to hear national speakers such as Cynthia Cooper.  By doing so, they promote Oklahoma as a great state to do business.
