Ethisphere Announces Seventh Annual Global Ethics Summit in New York With Focus on Elevating Value Through Integrity

The two-day agenda highlights the importance of core company values and the impact on ethical performance, reputation and behavior.

NEW YORK – November 18, 2014– Ethisphere, the global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, announced the 7th annual Global Ethics Summit, Elevating Value Through Integrity: How Leading Companies Accomplish Excellence Worldwide.

The summit will take place on March 10-11, 2015 in New York at the Grand Hyatt and will offer participants the opportunity to:

  • Hear from CEOs of leading multinational companies sharing insight on leadership and reputation
  • Listen in as Board members share their views on governance, ethics and leadership
  • Network with executives and in-house counsel
  • Understand the government’s view on the compliance and corruption landscape, and emerging approaches to enforcement
  • Actively participate in roundtable discussions with company leaders
  • Select from substantive breakouts offering best practice insights from compliance & ethics leadership

“Leadership and reputation has been a hot topic issue not only in the media but also in the boardroom,” said Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich. “In partnership with the Steering Committee our expectation is that attendees will take away actionable strategies and that these – solidified by peer conversations and newly-forged relationships – will lead towards improved corporate governance, more effective risk mitigation practices and enhanced overall company performance.”
