Previous Events

Business Ethics Conference

The Business Conference was held in conjunction with Leeds University Business school in April 2014. The conference saw a number of high profile speakers addressing a wide variety of topics.  Please click here for more information about the conference.

Real Integrity Launch

The Real Integrity report was launched on the 30 October 2012, it is the culmination of a major research project which combined an online survey with nearly 1,500 respondents, interviews with 94 employees in organisations of a wide range of sizes and types, and an investigation into the philosophical literature, to gain practical insights into steps which organisations can take to promote or encourage integrity.  The relationship between integrity and organisations is far from a new issue, but it is one which, in the wake of the banking crisis, the MPs' expenses scandal and the phone-hacking revelations at the News of the World, has never been more current.
