At Scholars of Finance our values are incredibly important to us. When the founding team developed them, it was through a process of weeks of introspection, discussion, and dozens of hours of debate. We arrived at a set of values, and behaviors that tangibly demonstrate those values, that we can all strive to uphold. We have ongoing discussions about our values and even offer each other 360° feedback with our values as a touchstone.
Since our primary focus is to espouse ethics, integrity, and stewardship among finance leaders of tomorrow, we orient conversations around how to uphold these values in the finance industry, at work, and while making investment decisions. While these are framed for our Scholars of Finance team specifically, we also believe that these can be framed for use in all aspects of a leaders life, whether at work, with friends, or at home.
