The Center for Ethical Business Cultures invites you to the next in a series of discussions on organizational culture, particularly the challenges of sustaining a commitment to ethical conduct.

When asked about their most persistent challenges in management, leaders often cite balancing the interests of multiple stakeholders – investors, employees, customers, suppliers, etc. This topic takes center stage in the third of our series of conversations on the CEBC model and your experiences. Different constituents typically confront the organization with different and often conflicting expectations.

Moreover, for each of these different relationships, there are varying requirements  for communication between the parties and for the maintenance of the relationship itself. Not infrequently, expectations can outrun the organization’s intent or ability to meet them. Similarly, our language itself can create unrealistic expectations. Please join us for the conversation about an aspect of ethical culture that is evolving with changes in our economy, workforce and regulatory structures.


These are invitation-only meetings for members of CEBC; they are not open to the public. For information on membership, see the Center for Ethical Business Cultures website.

The goal: Build practical applications that help bring the framework to life in ways that you can take back into your organization; and help all of us shape cohesive, purposeful strategies ensuring that ethical values inspire our organizations.

Format: Each discussion will begin promptly with breakfast at 8 a.m. followed by discussion until we adjourn at 9:30 a.m. Sessions will be facilitated by Ron James, president and CEO of the center; alternatively, we typically invite a member of the group or a guest to serve as a “conversation starter” for a particular session.

Registration fee: The one-time fee for the entire series is $200.
