Opening Remarks + Ethisphere Driven Data

Ethisphere's CEO Erica Salmon Byrne opens the Global Ethics Summit! Hear the latest highlights and insights from the 2023 World's Most Ethical Companies data set.

A CEO Conversation on the Value of Values: Making Integrity a Business Opportunity

Ethics and values can, and should, set the direction of a business. Chief Executive Officers are in a unique position to drive transformation and ethical culture at their organizations as the voice of leadership. They can embolden the ethical course and voice the values that matter most. Hear from this panel of CEOs as they talk about doing just that and how integrity can be a competitive advantage, how to develop and maintain stakeholder trust, and fueling performance with integrity in this Ethics Economy.

Live: Ethicast

Join Bill Coffin LIVE from Global Ethics Summit bringing you behind the scenes interviews, data trends and best practices.

Driving Your Program Forward with Operationalizing Compliance Data

Some compliance programs are just starting to think about gathering and using operational data to monitor, assess, and improve their programs. Others have already made strides in this area. Whether you are on one end or the other of your journey, or somewhere in between, join this panel to understand how compliance programs are using data and metrics to better assess program performance and learn how they improve their efforts.

Equipping the Board to Lead on Ethics & Compliance

While we usually think of the broad employee base when talking about education and training, they are not the only group at your organization that needs attention. Your Board of Directors should also receive training and education on organization policies and values. In this session, learn how you can educate your Board of Directors on ethics and compliance, the what, when, and how of training board members, and the value of using case studies.

Managers as Pressure Regulators: Ensuring Employees Achieve with Integrity

Pressure is not inherently good or bad and depends on the circumstances surrounding it and the degree to which it is applied. It often cascades downward from senior leadership, with middle managers having a huge impact on how employees experience pressure to perform. In this session, hear from the panel on how managers can help their employees navigate pressure without compromising ethical values, how to lead by example, and how manager behavior can influence that of their employees.

Walk Before You Run: How to Stand Up or Support a Compliance Program Early in Their Journey

Not every organization is at the same point in their compliance program journey or has the same maturity level. Those with more mature programs can help cultivate and support smaller or less mature programs in their journey. Whether your compliance program is small or early its maturity, or you work with those in your value chain, let this session be your guide to building the foundations of a good ethics and compliance program at your organization or helping those who are early in their program maturity.

Luncheon Keynote

Claws, Carrots, & Sticks: Selecting the Right Tools to Encourage Ethical Behavior

In her September 2022 memo, Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco discussed using instruments of individual accountability such as discipline, claw backs, restitution, and others to discourage wrongdoing. This raises an interesting question: what is the best way to encourage ethical behavior at your organization? In this session, panelists will share their insights into how you can answer that question. The discussion will include how to create effective incentives or deterrents, partnering with other functions at your organization, and recognizing employees when they get it right.

Ethisphere Driven Data

Hear the latest insights from Ethisphere's current data set.

Avoiding ESG Potholes: The CLO View on Aligning with the Board, Delivering on Commitments, & Evolving Governance

The focus on ESG has increased dramatically in recent years. This has led to promises and commitments being made on a range of fronts from carbon-neutrality to community aid. However, these statements can lead to greenwashing, the false idea that products, aims, or policies are environmentally friendly. In this session, hear from leaders about the big picture on promises versus the ability to deliver, assurance and auditing, and avoiding greenwashing.

A New Dawn in Third Party Due Diligence

More and more organizations are stepping up their due diligence efforts for suppliers and other third parties. They are moving beyond certifications to garner a greater understanding about the way their potential partners operate. The scope of due diligence is also broadening with more attention on areas such as human rights. In this session, panelists will discuss how organizations can increase their due diligence efforts, strategies for successful monitoring, building trust and relationships with third parties, and how data analytics play a role in due diligence.

Ethisphere Client Conference: Risk

Ethisphere | Get To Know: The Sphere + Benchmarking

Helping Managers Get Ethics & Compliance Right in a World of Increasingly Varied Employee Expectations

Speaking up to a manager is a common modality for reporting concerns and potential misconduct for employees. However, with varying employee expectations, cultural and generational differences, and multiple types of work environments in the same organization, it can be challenging to prepare managers for these conversations. In this session, the panel will discuss how to prepare managers for ethics and compliance conversations, dealing with the mental health of employees, and creating an environment where employees feel safe speaking up.

Maximizing Time & Attention of the Board, Leadership, and Other Stakeholders to Showcase Your Program

It will come as no surprise to anyone to hear that it can be challenging get the attention of the Board or leadership, let alone get their time to discuss and showcase your ethics and compliance program. In this session, hear from ethics and compliance leaders on how they highlight their program and its value, get tips on creating dashboards, defining KPIs, and building reports, and learn how and how often they are able to get in front of their Board or board committees.

The Blurring Lines of Training & Communication: Using the Best of Both Approaches to Build Employee Competency

Training and communications are so often paired together when talking about ethics and compliance. This isn�t necessarily a bad thing as they typically go hand-in-hand. One can be used to increase the effectiveness of the other. In this session, hear from panelists about how you can utilize a communications mindset to deliver training content, keep the important conversations going throughout the year, and capitalize on the opportunity of compliance or integrity weeks.

Live! Ethicast

Putting Ethics & Culture in the Driver's Seat of Business Strategy

A poor ethical culture will eat compliance policies and certifications for lunch. The phrase, "it was a business decision" is still used in defense of ethically gray actions, as if ethical culture is somehow separate from business. In this session, learn from the panelists about the importance of including ethics in the conversation about business strategy, holding leaders accountable for setting cultural expectations at the organization, and how to make ethical behavior a business goal.

Ethicast - Highlights from the Day

Cocktail Reception

Opening Remarks + Ethisphere Drive Data

Kicking off the final day of the Summit with more insights from the 2023 World's Most Ethical Companies data set.

A Board Conversation on Today's Risk Environment

Board members have had to guide companies in a risk environment being fed by a firehose of new challenges. How does the board view the current risk environment? What data is the Board seeking to properly evaluate the risks at hand. In this session, a panel of Board members will discuss how the board looks at today's risk environment, how they assess the current business climate, and the role of compliance, integrity, and governance in aligning with the Board to more effectively improve in areas such as ESG to ensure values and opportunity outweigh the cost.

Culture Measurement 101 Revisited: What Remains the Same & What is Changing

Defining the Right Scale and Scope of Ethics & Compliance Risk Assessments for Your Organization

There is no one-size-fits all approach in the world of risk assessments. Including a handful of ethics and compliance questions within a larger enterprise risk assessment will likely not cultivate the information needed to build a foundation for a robust ethics and compliance program. However, there is often little appetite for, or value in, using an overly broad ethics and compliance-specific risk assessment. In this session, learn from panelists on how they created ethics and compliance risk assessments that fit their organizations.

People Impacts & ESG: Stakeholders as ESG Drivers

People and their expectations are one of the most powerful drivers of ESG goals and initiatives. It is imperative to listen to your employees, customers, the communities in which you operate, and those impacted by your products and practices. In this session, learn how to define and prioritize your stakeholders, focus on the �S� in ESG, and understand the risks and opportunities that your stakeholders� expectations can create.

The Power of Transparency & Storytelling to Bring Commitment to Values to Life

Information and data have power and sharing it can strengthen an organization�s culture. This is especially true in the case of investigations data, which, along with other measures of ethics and compliance activities, can be shared to bolster employee confidence in the organization�s commitment to values. In this session, panelists will talk about utilizing storytelling in their communications, how to increase transparency, and using data and real examples to educate employees on the investigations process and outcomes.
