The 2020 Virtual Canada Ethics Summit, a live, virtual program, brought together and fostered connections among ethics and compliance leaders across Canada. The Summit, which took place over three consecutive Tuesday mornings in July, featured leaders who addressed how they are driving ethics, compliance and integrity across their global operations and within the confines of today’s virtual working environment.
Topics addressed at the Summit included best practices in virtual training; reinforcing the value of integrity across an organization in a time of disruption; and perennial ethics and integrity challenges including ESG trends; anti-corruption best practices; data integrity, ethics and compliance communications; assessing and managing third party risks; and more.
Designed to share best practices and also provide the opportunity for companies to cultivate new connections and dialogue across the Canadian ethics and compliance community.
Over the course of three mornings, each spaced a week apart, in order to best accommodate the unique professional and personal schedules.
Six different focal topics for attendees to select from as part of unique interactive peer-to-peer exchanges with other E&C leaders through live video breakout discussions.
