A Perfect Place For Me: Cindy Morrison of Post Holdings on Her Attraction to Ethics and Compliance

Novemeber 3, 2020 LRN Corporation

“While I fell into ethics and compliance by accident, I feel like it’s just the perfect place for me. I’ve spent a lot of my adult life trying to figure out what the definition of purpose is. I found a definition that says you purpose is where your passion and life’s greatest need intersect. I’m naturally drawn to ethics.”
