WorldCom whistleblower Cynthia Cooper will be the guest speaker for UAH College of Business Administration's Distinguished Speaker Series on Tuesday, Sept. 23. Cooper's talk "Ethical Leadership for the 21st Century," will begin at 5:30 p.m., in the Chan Auditorium (located in the Business Administration Building). The UAH College of Business Administration will award 1.5 hours of CPA continuing professional education credit for seminar attendees. The talk is free and open to the public. Cynthia Cooper was vice president of the internal audit department when her team of auditors uncovered nearly $4 billion in fraud at WorldCom in 2002. At the time, it was the largest account fraud in American history. Later that same year, Cooper was one of three people named "People of the Year" by Time magazine.
