CPAs Needed to Participate in Anti-Fraud Research

NJCPA members are invited to participate in anti-fraud research conducted by Leslie C. Kirsch, CFE, CIA, CISA, CIDA, a doctoral candidate at the George Washington University (GWU).

Leslie’s dissertation research study investigates the relationship between tone at the top and the fraud risks in the famous fraud triangle. She is surveying accountants about their personal experiences of fraud risk and top-level ethical leadership. The purpose of her research is to learn more about individual experiences of pressure, opportunity and rationalization and top-level ethical leadership in order to better understand how to prevent occupational fraud and develop ethical leaders.

If you are an accountant that is employed at least 20 hours per week, and you are not your company’s top executive or sole owner, you can participate in this opportunity to contribute to anti-fraud research. The survey is expected to take no more than 30 minutes.
