The Fall 2022 Let’s Talk program is all about speaking up and expressing your values. The program teaches you to speak up when something seems wrong and create a culture where people are empowered to do so. The program provides concrete examples of what the action of two high profile whistleblowers, Sherron Watkins, Enron whistleblower and Cheung, looks like. These speakers will share what they have learned from their experiences to help you prepare to act when and if you face similar ethical dilemmas in the future.
