Navran Associates is focused on the current ethics and leadership challenges to Boards of Directors, Board members, CEOs, executives and Ethics/Compliance Offices and Committees. Such issues include the following:
Issues Facing Boards and Board Members
- How have recent updates to the Federal Sentencing Guidelines for Organizations, the imposition of Sarbanes-Oxley and other governance challenges changed our responsibilities regarding independence and ethics oversight?
- What are the similarities and differences between the roles, responsibilities and qualifications of an “Audit Committee of the Board” and an “Ethics Committee of the Board”?
- How do we determine whether to adopt a Board-specific Statement of Values and Code of Ethics?
- How do we best execute our obligations for ethics oversight and periodic, independent ethics assessment?
