Fund manager, former securities executive and part-time Hawai‘i resident Will K. Weinstein is returning to the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa to moderate his annual Will Weinstein Ethics Conversation Series featuring distinguished executives and professionals from Hawai‘i and the mainland.

This year, Weinstein has added a special session called Ethics in Entertainment to discuss topics in the music industry such as streaming services, music royalties and compensation, and the price of fame. The speakers include Shep Gordon, talent manager, film agent and producer; Chris McCutcheon, CEO and president of TRI Studios; Jacqueline Sabec, Los Angeles entertainment lawyer; Brian Zisk, executive producer of the SF MusicTech Summit; and Simon Potts, former executive at Arista, Elektra and Capitol Records.

The conversation series features seven lively sessions on current ethical dilemmas making headlines in the legal, medical, non-profit, financial, sports, and entertainment industries. Guest speakers includes J. Michael Seabright, U.S. District Judge; Jay Shidler, founder and managing partner of The Shidler Group; Mary Bitterman and Bernard Osher of the Bernard Osher Foundation; Mark Dunkerley, president and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines; Dave Shoji, UH Wahine Volleyball coach; and Bob Harrison, chairman and CEO of First Hawaiian Bank, to name a few. 

This is Weinstein's 12th year of moderating this series in conjunction with his graduate summer course named “Integrity and Ethics in the Real World.” The series will be held at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa starting July 14 and is free and open to the public. As an added bonus, licensed attorneys are eligible for continuing professional education credits.
