OKLAHOMA NATIVE TO DISCUSS ETHICS ON WALL STREET THURSDAY

Marran Ogilvie, an Oklahoma native who rose to executive positions on Wall Street, will present an insider's view of the ethical controversies on Wall Street at 1:30 p.m. Thursday [APRIL 14] at the 21st annual Parker Ethics Lecture at East Central University. She will speak in the Estep Multimedia Center in the Bill S. Cole University Center.        

The lecture is sponsored by the Oscar L. Parker Center for the Advancement of Ethical Standards in Business and Society along with the ECU Business Club and the ECU student chapter of the Oklahoma Business Ethics Consortium. It is open to the public.

“This is a great opportunity for so many different patrons in Ada, and will certainly benefit all who attend,” said Dr. Thomas Lanis, director of the Parker Ethics Center. “Her presentation is sure to be interesting, exciting and intriguing as she reveals what goes on inside these powerful organizations.”         

The Parker Ethics Center was established in 1988 as a memorial to Oscar L. Parker, a highly respected educator, businessman, college administrator and civic leader in Ada, and an active supporter and long-time employee of ECU.            

Its mission is to be an accessible resource on ethics for business and society, promote ethics education and ethical behavior, and foster discussion on ethics and ethical issues.
