    Ethics In Action
    Patrick Quinlan, CEO, Convercent

    Global organizations are realizing that becoming more ethical directly impacts their bottom line. While they realize that driving ethics to the center of their business is the goal, few understand how to operationalize ethics on a daily basis with their employees. In this keynote Patrick Quinlan will discuss the global business climate and how innovation is providing new insights and opportunities for companies to improve their ethical performance and their bottom line.

    CEO As Activist: Whose Role is it anyway?
    Panelists: Jay Fulcher, CEO, Zenefits, Walter Rakowich former Pro Logis CEO, Jewell Hoover, AARP

    For centuries people have looked to institutions for guidance on social and ethical issues. Institutions like churches and governments have been the mainstay for providing a true north for society. Lately there has been a vacuum of institutional ethical leadership and a new entrant filling this gap is the ethical corporation.

    Consumers today are looking for the companies they buy from to align to their own ethical values. And they are looking to CEO’s to respond to social injustices and ethical lapses in society. What is the CEO’s role in “taking sides” on societal issues like gun control, equal rights, and other ethical social issues? Should they? This panel will explore the opinions and beliefs of leading CEO’s, and highlight specific programs that companies are doing (or not) to make this happen.

    Driving Ethics In Action In A Global Organization
    Sharon Gebhard, Global Business Integrity Director, Unilever

    Creating compliance and ethics programs that are inclusive of all employees around the globe is a constant challenge for multi-national companies. Effective programs cannot be a one-size-fits all, but rather must be tailored for the varying cultures of different countries.

    Sharon Gebhard, the global business integrity director of Unilever, will share her insights and experience in creating Unilever’s worldwide ethics and compliance program. Ms. Gebhard travels the globe to deploy and track the most effective compliance and ethics programs.

    Unilever is one of the world's leading suppliers of Personal Care, Food & Refreshment and Home Care products with sales in over 190 countries and reaching 2.5 billion consumers a day. Unilever employs approximately 8,000 people in the United States – generating more than $9 billion in sales in 2017.
