Why You Should Attend...
This compelling new book by TTF USA Ambassador, Dr. Kara Tan Bhala, entitled “Ethics in Finance: Case Studies from a Woman’s Life on Wall Street” tells the story of an immigrant Asian American woman’s journey through Wall Street finance.
She recounts her encounters during her career, with common but often unacknowledged financial ethics problems through ten short stories or case studies. Dr. Tan Bhala uses these narratives to engage the reader into learning how to evaluate and to determine resolutions to ethical issues in real life situations. The book aims to teach and to entertain. Dr. Tan Bhala makes abstract and abstruse moral philosophical concepts understandable for the reader by using plain language, in an informal style, and relating the philosophy to her experiences.
The book gets to the very heart of the matters that are of huge importance to the TTF and our fast-growing community.
Kara’s book has already achieved great acclaim:
- The recipient of a bronze medal from the US Axiom Business Book Awards in the Business Ethics category
- Shortlisted for the Business Book Awards 2022: International Business Book
Kara is a tremendous advocate for the work of the TTF – she wrote the Foreword for our book, appeared with Andy Agathangelou on TV to discuss the book, and delivered a memorably engaging, thought-provoking and witty presentation on ethics at an event we ran in London back in 2019.
This TTF Book Club session will provide a first class opportunity to engage directly with the author and to discuss the many relevant issues the book brings to the surface.
Note that attendees at our event do not need to have read the book beforehand.
Here's the programme so far...
