The corporate world has become known by many for greed, corruption, and fraudulent activity. This has been more true after the economy took a downturn. However, some executives haven’t fallen into those patterns. In fact, some people have worked to stop the unethical behavior in the business world. Helane Morrison has been one such individual for her whole career. She also has sought to maintain ethical integrity in her company. In fact, that is part of her current job title. Helane Morrison has worked very hard to attain success in the corporate world, and her success makes her a great role model for women in finance. She is an example of a woman that has broken through the “glass ceiling” that prevents many women from reaching their goals.
