Carnegie Council Releases “Ethics in Business” Compilation Videos Ahead of Global Ethics Day on October 16

Oct 10, 2019

Ahead of Global Ethics Day on October 16, Carnegie Council has released three short videos compiling some of the most compelling moments from the "Ethics in Business: In Their Own Words" interview series, produced in partnership with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and CFA Institute.

Featuring Helen Brand, ACCA chief executive, and Paul Smith, outgoing CFA Institute CEO, along with other business leaders, these compilations, produced by PWPvideo, feature the "Ethics in Business" interview subjects discussing the most pressing ethical issues their industries and organizations face, the importance of trust, and how to nurture diversity. They can be found on Carnegie Council's YouTube channel, along with the eight full "Ethics in Business" interviews. The three videos are also embedded on this page below.

Launched to celebrate Global Ethics Day in October 2018, "Ethics in Business" features global business leaders exploring how their organizations and industries are preparing for an ethical future in the face of threats and challenges presented by globalization, technology, and human psychology. Between October 2018 and August 2019, eight interviews were produced and posted to Carnegie Council's YouTube channel and distributed throughout ACCA's and CFA Institute's professional networks. They are all hosted by Magalie Laguerre-Wilkinson, a producer and reporter at CUNY TV and associate producer at 60 Minutes.

"We are excited to share these new videos," says Carnegie Council's Deborah Carroll, executive producer of the "Ethics in Business" series. "They really bring out the essence of this project and are a great way to spread the word about Global Ethics Day. This series features business leaders from all over the world, but they all have a commitment to ethics, diversity, and increasing trust between corporations and the public."

In addition, these interviews have been turned into six half-hour television shows, currently airing on CUNY TV in the New York City metro area.

Also in celebration of Global Ethics Day, Carnegie Council will also be hosting a webinar with Bruce Weinstein, The Ethics Guy®, entitled "How Ethical Leadership is the Key to Sustained Success in Business." The 45-minute webinar, which will be the centerpiece of Carnegie Council's celebration of the sixth Global Ethics Day, will take place at 11 a.m. on October 16.

Terri Civitello, associate director of ethics and compliance at the Otis Elevator Company, Mike Valentine, CEO of Baxter Credit Union, and Carol Tate, director​ of​ global ethics and compliance​ and associate general counsel ​for Intel Corporation, are scheduled to appear on the webinar, which will focus on why businesses cannot afford to hire a single dishonest employee.

Launched by Carnegie Council in 2014, Global Ethics Day is an opportunity for institutions to hold events on or around this day to explore the essential role of ethics, and how we can strive to make the world, quite simply, better.
