From Issue: Volume XXI - Number 4
George Deukmejian, 35th governor of California, will be the featured speaker at the Leading the Ethical Organization breakfast seminar, 7:15-9:45 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 28 at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach. His talk will be moderated by L.A. County Supervisor Don Knabe.
George Deukmejian served as California’s Governor from 1983 to 1991, after having served as the state’s attorney general, state senator and in the State Assembly. His tenure as governor was highlighted by policies that established a positive business climate in the state. As a result, California led the nation in major new business expansions, growth in small businesses, and creation of nearly three million new jobs, making California one of the ten largest economies in the world.
The seminar will also feature a panel discussion about real-life ethical challenges faced by business leaders. Panelists include Diana Hendel, CEO of Long Beach Memorial, Chris McKenzie, executive director of the League of California Cities; and Aaron Beam, providing an insider’s look at the collapse of HealthSouth Corporation and white-collar crime.
The seminar is being offered by the Long Beach Area Chamber of Commerce and Ukleja Center for Ethical Leadership at California State University, Long Beach. The Ukleja Center will present Deukmejian with its 2013 Nell and John Wooden Ethics in Leadership Award at the event.
