Texas Tech's Rawls College of Business will host Cynthia Cooper, former vice president of internal audit at WorldCom and whistle-blower extraordinaire.
Cooper will speak about ethics in the workplace at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, at the Media and Communication Building, Room 281. The event is free and open to the public.
Cooper is well known for having a role in unraveling fraud at her former company WorldCom. As a result of her ethic, Cooper was named one of Time magazine's people of the year in 2002 along with Coleen Rowley and Sherron Watkins.
In her book, "Extraordinary Circumstances," she outlines the importance of having leadership foster an ethical environment in the workplace.
Cooper currently speaks for and consults with many organizations, including Wal-Mart, Dell, AT&T and the FBI.
