Senator Bill Bradley and Cindy McCain Join as Keynote Speakers for Ethisphere’s Leading 2017 Global Events in New York

Leading events include the 9th Annual Global Ethics Summit and World’s Most Ethical Companies Honoree Gala Dinner

January 11, 2017 – New York, NY – Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, announced today that Bill Bradley, author and former U.S. Senator, and Cindy McCain, Co-chair, Arizona Governor’s Council on Human Trafficking and member of the McCain Institute’s Human Trafficking Advisory Council, will join the distinguished faculty for Ethisphere’s World’s Most Ethical Companies® Honoree Gala and 9th Annual Global Ethics Summit® in New York, March 14-16, 2017.

Senator Bradley will be the keynote speaker at the annual celebration of the World’s Most Ethical Companies on Tuesday, March 14 following the public announcement of those companies recognized by Ethisphere. The World’s Most Ethical Companies program honors those that excel in promoting ethical business standards and practices internally, enabling managers and employees to make good choices and shaping future industry standards by introducing tomorrow’s best practices today. Honorees have historically out-performed others financially, demonstrating the connection between good ethical practices and performance that’s valued in the marketplace.

Senator Bradley rose to prominence in the U.S. Senate from 1979 to 1997, representing the state of New Jersey, as a bipartisan leader dedicated to working across the aisle and earned respect on both sides as a man of character. In 2000, he ran for President on the Democratic ticket. Before his foray into politics, Bradley excelled as an Olympic gold medalist and two-time NBA champion with the New York Knicks. Bradley is the author of six books on American politics, culture and economy, including “Time Present, Time Past”, “The New American Story” and “Values of the Game”. Senator Bradley now serves as a Managing Director of Allen & Company LLC and as a member of the board of directors for Starbucks Coffee Company, a World’s Most Ethical Companies honoree for 10 consecutive years.
