Diane L. Swanson, professor of management, will present "Professional Ethics Matters: Context, Concepts, and Coming Attractions" to the Topeka chapter of the Institute of Internal Auditors on May 2.

As part of her talk, Swanson will discuss the clarion call for corporate responsibility and professional ethics that occurred decades ago in the U.S. and how academics and practitioners responded to it. In this context, she will describe some concepts that took hold in the wake of this call that helped define these two areas and their relevance to practice, including the code of professional conduct for accountants and the code of ethics for auditors. Swanson will conclude the talk by highlighting some coming attractions or trends related to these areas.

The event will be noon to 2 pm at Capitol Federal in Topeka.
