You're invited to the MN Ethics Initiative Forum: Partnering for Youth, hosted by the Holloran Center for Ethical Leadership and the Center for Ethical Business Cultures.

Hank Shea, former federal prosecutor and current fellow at the Holloran Center has been speaking around the country to raise awareness of the ethics crisis in America today. He states, "My view is that our current economic difficulties, this nation’s economic crisis, have been caused by illegal conduct by some, unethical conduct by more, and a lack of character and ethical leadership by too many. Not just on Wall Street or in Washington,D.C., but everywhere in this country—in our businesses, schools, and communities."

Join us for an interactive session from 10:00 a.m -noon with the following leaders who are committed to partnering for youth: Joe Cavanaugh- Founder & CEO of Youth Frontiers, Becky Roloff- CEO of the YWCA of Minneapolis, Ron James- CEO of the Center for Ethical Business Cultures, Hank Shea- University of St. Thomas School of Law, Mark Sheffert- Founder & CEO of Manchester Companies, and nationally recognized educators- Sara T. Paul and Karen Rusthoven.

You will then have the opportunity at lunch to dine with and encourage the leaders of tomorrow, high school students attending the concurrently run event- MN Student Leadership Seminar, and hear from keynote speaker Don Shelby.

Following lunch, time is set aside to network, with sharing from task forces that have formulated concrete action steps to support, empower and inspire youth to make ethical decisions for themselves on behalf of the world.
