Ethics Town Hall to look at $53 million embezzlement case

If you uncovered fraud within your organization, would you say something? If so, whom would you tell? What would you say?

Rita Crundwell stole $53 million while working for the small town of Dixon, Illinois. She abused the trust of city taxpayers, her coworkers and the public.

Her crime was the biggest municipal fraud in U.S. history … but it could have been prevented.

On Sept. 2, 2015 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Child Hall in the Spencer Fox Eccles Business Building, gather your coworkers, friends and family and come to the Ethical Leadership Town Hall Meeting to see and discuss footage from the in-process documentary, “All the Queen’s Horses,” that chronicles this tragic story.

During the free event, co-hosted by the University of Utah David Eccles School of Business, the Student Center for the Public Trust, Daniels Fund and Helios Digital Learning, participants will be able to:

  • Learn how this fraud went undetected for 20 years.
  • Hear why some people are reluctant to report misconduct.
  • Understand how relationships can create ethical blind spots.
  • Discuss what to do if you discover misconduct in your organization.

Learn more about the Dixon, Illinois fraud, Helios Digital Learning, and the Daniels Fund.
