“Business has had to rise to a new level of responsibility and transparency while facing ongoing global disruption. Swift decisions on complicated issues are now made daily, supported by new standards, data analysis, and program innovations. The Global Ethics Summit provides these leaders with opportunities to gain trusted insights into how peer companies are addressing shared challenges and making more confident decisions,” said Kevin McCormack, Executive Vice President, and Executive Director, Business Ethics Leadership Alliance (BELA). “It’s more important than ever that business come together to forge solutions that will benefit all stakeholders. The Global Ethics Summit provides the forum, the community, and connections to empower leaders to drive positive, and important, changes.”

“During my tenure I’ve seen a tremendous evolution of Ethics and Compliance programs. E&C professionals have become trusted partners, continually pushing the bar forward and embedding transparency and fairness in everything we do, said Callie Pappas, Vice President, Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer, Deputy General Counsel, Schnitzer Steel. “Today’s responsible companies know that integrity doesn’t just happen, and increasingly look to us to provide guidance and help make sure that it does.”

“As the demands on Ethics & Compliance departments continue to increase, the Global Ethics Summit provides a

valuable vehicle for the exchanging of ideas from practitioners on how to drive measurable change,” said H Jordan  Weitz, Senior Director, Compliance Risk Intelligence Group, Carnival Corporation.

“Emerging privacy and whistleblowing rules across the world have growing implications for how organizations handle their internal investigations. The time to center privacy  compliance in your next investigation is now. This conversation can no longer wait,”  said Alja Poler De Zwart, Partner, Morrison & Foerster.

 

“As respected sources like the recent 2022 Edelman Trust Barometer shows, consumers across the globe turn to the business community as their most trusted source to create change in our world. There cannot be a forum better than the Global Ethics Summit to highlight this responsibility for ethical business leaders to gather together, exchange ideas, and solidify the faith that our stakeholders place on us,” said Ritu Jain, Executive Leader, Global Governance and Assurance, GE.
