I greet the college basketball championships this year with mixed emotions. As a hoop fan, this is a highlight of the calendar. As an ethics and compliance professional considering the current pay-for-recruitment scandal at several leading schools, well, what a mess.
But from both perspectives, Tom Fox and I have decided to mark the beginning of “March Madness” with a reprise of our live web-chat we call, “Ethics Madness.”
LeadGood will host this “live blog” panel discussion on our LeadGood Live! page on Friday afternoon March 1
6, starting at 2 PM (Eastern) and going until 6:00 (at least). Join me, Tom Fox, Matt Kelly, and other guests as we discuss current issues in compliance and ethics, including compliance in sports and education, and sports as a metaphor and lesson for corporate C&E efforts, as well as the cultural messages about ethics and compliance that a typical NCAA viewer is receiving – in the ads, during the games, and real-time in social media.
We might talk about other E&C topics. And judging from last time, we’ll talk a little hoop, too!
And throughout the tournament, let’s all resolve to share our E&C thoughts by using the hashtag #EthicsMadness.
Face it, you want a way to watch the First Round afternoon games without feeling guilty. So here it is! (But follow us even if you’re stuck at your desk – I’ll be sure to pass along the key scores along with our pithy, pointed, and (I hope) useful thoughts.)
