“Multinationals face immense challenges in today’s business environment. And while each have distinct industry impact, they are universally connected through a number of essential themes. Identifying these common threads and bringing forward-thinking global companies together to share lessons and emerging views is a hallmark for this annual event,” said Kevin McCormack, Ethisphere’s Vice President of Global Though Leadership and Programs. “Without the commitments from these companies, the Global Ethics Summit cannot be truly global. The company leaders that speak offer a perspective on worldwide realities and diverse business practices that resonate with so many other multinationals when it comes to integrity, governance and risk.”

Join these leaders and a faculty representing over 50 different organizations at the Global Ethics Summit on March 15-16, 2017 at the Grand Hyatt New York in New York City: On Tuesday, March 14, Ethisphere will celebrate the 2017 World’s Most Ethical Companies® at our annual Gala Dinner: Registration is now open for both events.
