Hazel-Ann Mayers will give the keynote speech at this year’s Bolte School of Business Ethics Pledge event. Mayers is the Senior Vice President, Assistant General Counsel, Litigation and Chief Compliance Officer for CBS Corporation. As a representative for CBS and its business units in litigation matters, Mayers was excited to speak to this year’s senior class business majors about cultivating and maintaining a strong ethical framework.
During the annual Ethics Pledge event senior class business majors commit to always act ethically in the business world. The pledge provides a strong foundation for students as they move from classroom to career, and holds the students to the high ethical standards embedded in the Bolte School curriculum.
Mayers, a Harvard Law School graduate, believes it is important for graduating seniors to have a strong moral compass and, “as they begin their careers and professional development should constantly be aware that their actions align with their standards.” Mayers is impressed by the fact that Mount St. Mary’s has an ethics pledge for the seniors and considers the issue to be of utmost importance, specifically for those about to enter the workforce.
Past Ethics Pledge speakers have included Richard J. Bolte Jr. C’ 79, Heath Tarbert C’98, Scott Briggs, and Charlie Haberkorn C’80.
The Ethics Pledge will be held Thursday, April 16, at 4 p.m. in Knott Auditorium.
