If the name Erika Cheung sounds familiar, it may be because you followed the rise and fall of the multi-billing-dollar tech startup company Theranos. Cheung was a whistleblower in that case who came forward to raise concerns over its lab practices, ultimately opting to separate herself from the company due to medical ethics violations. Nowadays, she helps other tech startup companies build out their organizations with ethics in mind from the get-go.
During our interview, we examined some of the ethical issues and lessons learned in the Theranos case, how she is building the need for startup tech firms to build out ethical considerations in their businesses from the ground up, and creating a repository of both solution providers and case studies for her nonprofit Ethics in Entrepreneurship where she is the CEO. We hope you enjoy hearing her insights from the Theranos case and how she exercised 'the Courage of Convictions, ' our 2022-23 leadership theme at the VMI Center for Leadership and Ethics.
