The Growing Professionalization of Ethics and Compliance
March 17 @ 14:00 - 17:00 EDT
About the event:
In the early days of compliance, the compliance role was a responsibility handed off to an in house lawyer who didn’t want it and didn’t know what to do with it. We’ve come a long way since then, but can we say that ethics and compliance is now a separate profession? In this session we’ll discuss the evolution of the compliance role, and what it will take for E&C to be viewed as a true profession. We’ll also discuss what the emerging ethics and compliance “profession” will look like in 10 or 20 years.
