Cancelled – Ethical Decision Making Workshop

26/3/2020 | 08:30 - 10:30

Registration deadline: 11.3.2020.

CFA Society Finland is hosting its annual Ethics Workshop and warmly welcomes you to attend on March 26th 2020 at 8.30-10.30 am at Hotel Haven (Unioninkatu 17, Helsinki 00130).

Being able to work successfully with ambiguity is increasingly cited as a critical skill in modern work places.

Ethical dilemmas are a form of work place ambiguity, readily generated by the competing priorities in finance and investment business. It is a common misconception that unethical action is an uncommon occurrence, performed by already bad people. On the contrary, ethical dilemmas are entirely commonplace occurrences, and often result in perfectly good people deciding to do questionable things –  driven by psychological biases, social & organizational factors, and situational influences that can affect decision making and behavior.

This case based Ethical Decision making workshop broadly has three goals:

1. Encourage participants to become more conscious about their thoughts & behaviors, so that they are more likely to notice, and act upon ethical issues before they become a problem.

2. To recognize that ethical dilemmas are a normal & predictable part of most jobs.

3. To discuss & practice approaches for dealing with ethical dilemmas.

The workshop will be lead by Sonia Gandhi, CFA, Director – Ethics Education & Professional Standards at CFA Institute. At CFA Institute Sonia Gandhi leads the effort to develop, promote and deliver educational content for CFA Institute members and investment professionals in the area of ethics and professional standards.  Sonia has spent over 20 years in the Investment industry working with several global blue chip Investment Banks. As Director -Institutional Equities, she was responsible for Deutsche Bank’s APAC client base. Previously, she has worked with JP Morgan, BNP Paribas and Jardine Fleming in various roles, responsible for equity sales, capital market transactions and global account management.
