Monmouth University presents “Ethical and Leadership Lessons from the Collapse of Enron,” on Thursday, February 12, at 6 p.m. in Wilson Hall Auditorium with guest speaker Sherron Watkins, known as the Enron Whistleblower.

Watkins is the former vice president of Corporate Development at Enron Corporation who alerted then-CEO Ken Lay in August 2001 to accounting irregularities within the company, warning him that Enron might implode in a wave of accounting scandals. She has testified before Congressional Committees from the House and Senate investigating Enron’s demise. She is co-author, along with prize-winning journalist, Mimi Swartz, of “Power Failure, the Inside Story of the Collapse of Enron.”

This program is free and is part of the H.R. Young Lecture Series of the Leon Hess Business School and the Stephen B. Siegel Lecture Series of the Kislak Real Estate Institute at Monmouth University.

The event is open to the public. Limited seating is available, so reservations are required. RSVP by February 6 to Theresa Lowy at 732-571-4412 or tlowy@monmouth.edu.
