Event Details

Date: 03/02/18 Cost: $0 Time: 3:00 PM Location: New York

It's been a decade since the global financial crisis of 2008. What lessons did we learn from the crisis and has anything been done to prevent a future economic collapse? Join us for three FREE roundtable discussions about the past, present, and future of responsible management in the global financial system. Each session will be led by two experts who will share their professional experiences in the business world and facilitate a conversation on relevant topics that impact all of us as consumers, professionals, and global citizens. 

This is a unique opportunity to engage in a candid exchange of ideas with seasoned professionals and discuss hot topics in global business ethics, preventing corporate misconduct, and the importance of good governance and regulation.
