Carlson spoke about ethics in leadership and fulfillment of professional commitments. Specifically, he discussed the ways employees’ codes of conduct lead to ethical decision making in the workplace.

Carlson is managing partner of KPMG in Washington, D.C., a position he has held since 2013. Previously, he served in a variety of roles in KPMG’s St. Louis office, which he joined in 1981.

The symposium is named for Richard Orin, BS BA ’49, who partnered with the Trulaske College of Business to create it.
