Ethical Intelligence for CPAs

1:00 pm–1:50 pm ET

# of CPE Credits



Ethical intelligence is one’s ability to understand, develop, and regulate their own ethical reasoning. It includes ability to recognize and interpret ethical elements of a situation, determine best actions, and follow through on ethical commitments. Ethical intelligence focuses on how you interpret your feelings and make decisions from an ethical perspective. The session tackles difficult dilemmas where there isn’t an obvious answer and difficult questions beginning with whether it’s even possible to teach ethics in the first place.
