I recently had the great honor of speaking to a group of Texas A&M students from Dr. Michael Shaub’s Ethics class. Here’s what Dr. Shaub had to say:
In perhaps the most eloquent expression of remorse that I have heard in many years, Ms. Sharkey told the story in my Ethics class of her fall from grace at Dynegy a decade ago. She spoke of the people who influenced her, of the pressures she felt, of the key turning points when failing to “listen to her gut” diverted her life in ways she could never have imagined. She became, with her decisions, what in retrospect is the one thing she never wanted to be: Googlable.
