Newsletter AUGUST 2011 2011 Small Business Day June 9, 2011 Ms. Sherron Watkins, former Vice President at Enron Corporation, spoke on the importance of ethical corporate leadership to highlight the importance of ethics within businesses small and large at the 2011 Small Business Day Awards Luncheon. The UCCS Ethics Initiative teamed with the Small Business Development Center in order to bring this important keynote speaker to Colorado Springs. Sherron Watkins was the key whistleblower at Enron when she alerted then-CEO Ken Lay to accounting irregularities within Enron in August of 2001, warning him that the company "might implode in a wave of accounting scandals." She testified before Congressional committees from the United States House and Senate investigating Enron's demise. Over 64 attendees were at the Ethics Workshop prior to her luncheon address. The interactive workshop format with Ms. Watkins and local business owner Mr. Wendel Torres allowed attendees to ask a variety of business ethics questions, as well as hear about the unique business ethical dilemmas they have experienced.
