SAICA dedicated October 2020 to Ethics due to World Ethics day on the 21st of October. The October edition of the ASA magazine, contained a series of Ethics articles and SAICA launched a series of webinar broadcasts, all addressing different aspects of Ethics in the Accounting Profession.
This conversation is a strategic milestone in our journey towards restoring the professional reputation and trust which society has in the profession. The Public’s trust is essential for market stability and therefore a key priority for the profession.
The overarching theme of the series, is highlighting the need for CAs to take up their responsibility as ethical and effective leaders, creating sustainable value for a wide range of stakeholders, and promoting and “living” ethics in all the spheres and roles that they function in.
