Carol R. Marshall Award for Innovation in Corporate Ethics

In January 2010, ECI established an award to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of a business executive in the ethics and compliance field. The award honors the late Carol R. Marshall, ERC’s former Fellows Program chair and member of the ERC board of directors. Marshall was known for her innovative approach to implementing an ethics and compliance program and for many hours of dedicated service to nonprofit organizations in the industry. ECI wishes to commemorate her accomplishments by recognizing the achievements of those who follow in her footsteps.
