Bombay Management Association Global Conclave on Ethics
About this event
ETHICS forms the bedrock of principles based on which long-lasting businesses are built. Business Ethics is a moral compass that guides the conduct of any business. It is a system of moral and ethical beliefs that guides the values, behaviours, and decisions of a business organization and the individuals within that organization. It requires common sense and not rocket science to understand that Purpose-driven organizations command greater respect from all stakeholders including regulators and society at large and last long. There is enough empirical evidence around the world that proves that the companies which have survived beyond 100 years are the ones, which had a strong culture, and ETHICS are deeply embedded in their DNA.
However, it is unfortunate that in the last two decades there has been significant erosion in the Ethics and value system in governing the countries by politicians as well as governing & managing the companies by corporate leaders. Sample some of the top scams and frauds like Enron (2001), Lehman brothers & Madoff in (2008) in the USA, and 2G spectrum scam (2008), Satyam (2009), the coal allocation scam popularly called ‘Coalgate’ (2012) in India and not to forget the Financial Frauds, trade based & other economic crimes in Asia. The root cause for all this is extreme greed and deep erosion in Business Ethics & Value system.
The Global Conclave on Ethics is organised by the Bombay Management Association and the Dr. K.S. Basu Memorial Trust with the support of Globethics.net, the Mahendra & Young Knowledge Foundation and the Mervyn King Academy for Sustainable Development in Asia. The aim of the Global Conclave on Ethics, which will feature an address by Globethics.net Founder and President Dr Christoph Stückelberger, is to reinforce the practice of ethics in business decision making and sensitise business leaders and managers
