Fund manager and former securities executive Will K. Weinstein will moderate his annual Ethics Conversation Series, July 12 to August 4 on the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa campus. Weinstein’s series of eight lectures examines business and legal ethical dilemmas that are making headlines across the U.S. and beyond.

The new lectures will feature well-known executives and politicians from Hawaiʻi and the mainland.

- Alan Oshima, president and CEO of Hawaiian Electric Company
- Jeff Ono, state executive director of the Division of Consumer Advocacy

This is Weinstein’s 13th year of presenting this series as part of his graduate summer course, Integrity and Ethics in the Real World. As an added bonus, licensed attorneys who attend are eligible to receive continuing legal education credits.
