We conduct on-going research on various topics of international interest in ethics, including the relationship of ethics to strategy, governance, operations and ethics in society. Our research covers for-profit and non-profit organizations, as well as academic institutions and public policy. We regularly post summaries of findings and offer topics for open input. Our research is intended to inform our work with clients and provide clients on-going guidance on matters of general interest. We also provide materials available for downloading by the general public.
We are currently conducting a research study on key ethics priorities of corporations, venture capital/private equity/and other funds, non-profit organizations, and academic institutions. The study, assisted by Christine Exley (PhD Candidate in Economics, Stanford University), also covers the issue of contagion of unethical behavior within an organization, across an industry or sector, among sectors, and globally. We welcome participation in this anonymous 5-10 minute survey from senior management, partners, board members, or advisory board members of any such organization. To participate, click the link here. Participants will receive reports of preliminary findings and invitations to future webinars and other events we host on the subject of the research.
