On March 10-11, 2015, the Ethisphere Institute and Thomson Reuters co-hosted the 7th Annual Global Ethics Summit in New York, bringing together more than 425 leaders and executives. The Summit focused on “Elevating Value Through Integrity: How Leading Companies Accomplish Excellence Worldwide” and brought together CEOs, board chairs, communication, governance, compliance and risk management executives, and government and regulatory officials.
Each year, the conversation evolves and attendees take away new connections and relationships as well as practical advice to advance their programs and a high-level understanding of leaderships’ view and ethics and compliance trends. This year was no different. The conversation revolved around a few key themes including: building a sustainable culture of ethics within organizations; operating in global and emerging markets; the risks and rewards of social media in communications; and the evolving compliance career ladder. “Best Practices and Key Takeaways from the 7th Annual Global Ethics Summit” recaps the Summit and includes highlights and photos from the events and conversations that took place, including the 2015 World’s Most Ethical Companies® Honoree Gala Dinner that was held the evening before the Summit and the Business Ethics Leadership Alliance Member Dinner that occurred on the evening of day one.
WilmerHale Partner David Ogden was a featured speaker at the Summit.
