THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA
(Established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)
Annual Practical Ethics Forum (Mandatory Training)
Theme: Instilling Professionalism and Ethics in the Accountancy Profession
This is one of the mandatory trainings for Practicing Certificate consideration
Date: 24th to 25th February 2021
Time: 8.30 – 3.30 PM
Ethics are about having standards of behaviour and ‘doing the right thing’. This means that an ethical business will act in a socially responsible way, doing what is right even if it is not required to do so by legislation or regulation, and regardless of the impact it might have on profits. This view also applies to professionals in all spheres of work. Professional ethics apply in this case and it is critical to note that professional ethics entail principles that govern the behaviour of a person or group. Professionals are required to practice reasonable, responsible and transparent behavior that consciously avoids harmful actions by embodying high ethical standards.
Consequently, even the properly regulated professional organizations globally develop a set of ethical standards which their members are expected to abide by. This is because of the underlying consideration that all professions raise ethical issues, so the need for professional ethics and their practical application for their members who are in practice.
It is against this backdrop that the Institute has organized a two-day virtual workshop to explore the ethical considerations which are practically applicable in the workplace and as expected professionally.
- The Major Ethics vs Integrity Debate, which one matters?
- Professional Ethics in Practice – Considerations for the Accountant
- The Corruption Challenge in Kenya and Ethical Perspectives
- Personal Values and Ethical Conduct for the Professional Accountant
- Professional Misconduct and the Ethical Link – Insights from the Disciplinary Committee
