“Find the good and Praise it.”
These are words spoken by noted author and historian, Alex Haley. In keeping with this concept, the business programs at Marywood University have conducted a Forum on Ethical Leadership and Corporate Social Responsibility each year to prove that many prominent international and local businesses of all kinds conduct themselves in an admirable way and have prospered accordingly. When the forums began in 2002, our country was reeling as a result of the Enron scandals and several other scandals that tarnished the reputations of the organizations involved. The media is quick to pick up such negative stories and, sadly, these scandals continue in every area from business to medicine to athletics, politics and even in religious environments. Unethical behaviors are an “equal opportunity” phenomenon! Rather than paint our whole society as “corrupt,” it has been our objective here at Marywood to feature those organizations, both profit and non-profit, that practice business ethically and have a strong commitment to social responsibility. Some of the companies that have participated over the years include: Prudential, Cisco, Penn Security, Hewlett Packard, EOTC, Oliver Price & Rhodes, Catholic Relief Services and a host of others. Accomplished executives from various organizations have visited Marywood’s campus to enrich attendees with interesting stories and statistics illustrating ways in which their companies, in large part through ethical and competent leadership, enjoy both a robust bottom line and a reputation for giving back to the community and, in some cases, the world.
Doors open at 9:30 a.m. for registration, coffee and muffins. The first session begins at 10 a.m. and sessions continue throughout the day. At 7 p.m. there will be a key note address by attorney Jane Carlonas of Oliver Price & Rhodes followed by a Q & A and a networking reception.
