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

Leaders often cite balancing the interests of multiple stakeholders – investors, employees, customers, suppliers, etc. – as one of their most persistent management challenges. This topic takes center stage in our fourth in the series of conversations on the CEBC model and your experiences. Different constituents typically confront the organization with different and often conflicting expectations. Moreover, each of these diverse relationships imposes different requirements for negotiating the nature and content of the relationship and for communication between the parties. Not infrequently expectations can outrun the organization’s intent or ability to meet those expectations. Similarly, our language can itself 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; 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: Meetings will convene at the St. Thomas Minneapolis Campus. Each discussion will begin promptly with breakfast at 7:30 a.m. followed by discussion from 8-9:30 a.m.. We will adjourn at 9:30 a.m. Sessions will be facilitated by Ron James, president and CEO of the center; alternatively, we may invite a member of the group to serve as facilitator for a particular topic.
