Trustworthy Organization Summit to Be Held at FordhamContact: Patrick Verel
The Fordham Schools of Business’ Consortium For Trustworthy Organizations will hold its second annual summit “Building The Trustworthy Organization,” at the Lincoln Center campus.
Friday, Oct. 25
9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Fordham University Lincoln Center campus
The conference, which is co-sponsored by Ernst & Young, LLP, will focus on how leaders and companies can build trustworthy organizations that are exemplars in regaining the trust that has been lost in corporate and public life.
“The erosion of trust in many of our major institutions has been consistent and is now at alarmingly low levels. Comparing Gallup Poll data from 2013 with scores in the 1970s shows a 70 percent decline in confidence in Congress, a 50 percent decline in banks, more than a 30 percent decline in big business and a 30 percent decline in the presidency," said Robert Hurley, Ph. D., professor of management and director of The Consortium.
“Fortunately, our research shows that despite the overall declines in trust, some institutions and companies have managed to become more trustworthy and have actually increased confidence among stakeholders in this somewhat cynical age we find ourselves in.”
The conference features a roster of speakers from Fordham, Harvard, Durham and Duke Universities and global organizations such as IBM; Arthur W. Page Society; the Ethics & Compliance Officer Association; Aflac; Allstate; GE; Ernst & Young, LLP; and Wyndham Worldwide.
These thought leaders will participate in plenary sessions on defining the trustworthy organization, managing reputation, board governance and trust and creating an ethical corporate culture.
