Assignment:
Theranos: The alleged unethical conduct of Elizabeth Holmes, Sunny Balwani, individual
whistleblowers, Theranos Inc. (the entity) and the Theranos Board of Directors (individual
directors or the Board collectively) has been widely reported in the investigations of fraud by
Theranos and its representatives.
For this assignment, discuss and analyze the reported conduct by applying the Kantian,
Utilitarian, Stockholder and Stakeholder ethical theories and/or the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative
principles. For each action or omission that you address, separately analyze, and explain why
you believe the conduct in question was or was not ethical (i.e., “this conduct was unethical
because…”).
When you are writing about unethical conduct, suggest how you would have managed the
situation differently, including any concepts or statements that you would incorporate into code
of conduct/corporate governance policies, and support your suggestion by applying the Kantian,
Utilitarian, Stockholder and Stakeholder ethical theories and/or the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative
principles. Merely stating a conclusion such as “this suggested action may have enhanced the
long-term viability of Theranos” will receive little credit. You need to explain why you have
reached that conclusion (i.e., “this action may have enhanced the long-term viability of Theranos
because…”).
The investigation of Theranos and its leaders, including Elizabeth Holmes and Sunny Balwani,
as well as other actors, by the Securities & Exchange Commission and widely publicized
investigations by such media outlets as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair,
Forbes, and others continues to the present day. A non-fiction book by the Wall Street Journal
investigative reporter John Carreyrou “Bad Blood” is available in print, and the documentary
“The Inventor – Out for Blood in Silicon Valley” is available on most streaming sites. I have also
posted some articles in Canvas Modules for Business Ethics – Corporate Culture. You will need
to conduct outside research through these sources and through other sources on the Internet or
elsewhere to obtain a foundational understanding of the Theranos fraud allegedly perpetrated by
these actors on investors and patients.
You have free access to The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and other media sources
through the Auraria Library’s databases. You are strongly urged to make use of these resources
for your research. If off-campus, you can access these databases by entering in your
ucdenver.edu username and password when prompted. https://library.auraria.edu/databases.
